Bead and Metal Work Jewelry by Claudia Fajardo

By on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 4 Comments

Combining techniques is a sure fire way for unique designs.  But Colombian artisan, Claudia Fajardo, a talented artist unusually combines metal work with bead work.  The result is a boldly colored collection with a contemporary look.  Claudia says she likes her designs to showcase geometry and natural shapes.


Claudia uses sterling silver, glass beads, gemstones and 24K gold plated silver. She is a master of metal textures. The hammered, satin, matte finishes are perfect details to counter the colored beads. The prongs on some designs keep hold of her beadwork.

Simply lovely work which is balanced and pleasing to the eye!

    I particularly like the little silver earrings. The shape reminds me of blueberries!
