Safire Designs

I don't often strike up conversations with seat-mates on airplanes, but I'm so glad I did on a recent trip. I met a jewelry designer who works with fine silver, artisan lampwork & borosillicate glass. These are quality materials people, not the cheap beads and baubles you pick up at the local craft store. I fell in love with these silver earrings which are completely handmade. Sally-Ann Flak of SAFire Designs is also adept at the art of chain maille creating intricate woven designs from small rings and loops of silver. Check out her Etsy shop for a small sampling of her wares—send her a message to find out which show or festival she'll be at next so you can see her full inventory.
