Shahasp Valentine Jewelry - Combining Elegant Design with Precious Metal Clay

One of our favorite PMC jewelry designers is Shahasp Valentine. The grace and elegance of her precious metal clay pendants, necklaces, rings, and earrings are reminiscent of old-fashioned heirloom pieces.

This necklace is called Nouveau #3




Even though her handcrafted jewelry is new, it looks antique, like an heirloom handed down through generations.


This one is called Rococo Necklace




These are pieces that speak to the spirit of remembrance; to the spirit of memory that lies within us.


This one is called Classical Necklace #2




She describes her work in such an enchanting way:

"historically-inspired designs based on great jewels of the past, architectural details, stained glass windows of great cathedrals, and elements taken from virtually every period of history. .......the work in this collection is distinctly regal and intended to appear ancient. "



This necklace is called Salisbury




The flowing designs she creates in this Modern Artifacts Collection are mesmerizing. Each piece is hand-formed, signed, and numbered.



Here is a necklace called French Shell




We'll conclude by saying that we believe Shahasp is an artist who creates a whole lot of enchantment and romance in the form of jewelry. This is romance we can wear. Each lovely design, while formed with bold intention, displays every delicate detail that the artist envisioned. Her inspiration is apparent in every design.


How do you find your inspiration?


What mesmerizes your imagination and pushes you to create?
