Fresh Summer Style

We’re cooking up some fresh summer style here at Halstead, from stacking rings and bracelets to textured metal for smithing. Here’s a look at a few of our favorites:
Stack ’em up! Layering¬†rings in sterling silver and gold-filled is a hot look this summer. Keep it fresh by using rings in new, minimalist shapes like these squared-off bands.

 

Bracelets are another fresh layering look for any season. Attach charms or keep your chains plain for sleek summer style.

 

 

 

 

Texture is where it’s at for metalsmiths. Brighten up your sheet metal selections with these fresh pattern styles. They look great bright and shiny or you can bring out the depth by adding liver of sulfur or another patina.

Pattern wire will add texture to your next wire project. Whether you wrap it around the outside of a bezel or use it to create your own ring band, the pattern opens up a fresh, new world of possibilities.

 

 

 

Artist Kate Richbourg layered several elements together to create this statement ring. Gallery wire provides a textured look on the face of the stone while a hammered band makes a subtly-textured backdrop for the design.

 

 

 

Artist Jeff Fulkerson created this charm bangle for Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist using Halstead components. Think about using charms in your favorite motif for a fresh summer look.
