Handcrafted Jewelry Designer Jenne Rayburn Launches New Etsy Shop for Vintage Lucite Necklaces
Jenne Rayburn is a metalsmith, enamellist, and seasoned designer who creates lovely, original jewelry and textile designs intended to compliment the vision of the woman who wears them. Starting November 1st, 2013, Rayburn will have an Etsy shop devoted to her Vintage Lucite Jewelry and limited edition pieces from her Vintage Collection. You can find the shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/jennerayburn.
Lucite makes a wonderful fashion accessory for several reasons according to Rayburn. Foremost, Lucite is lightweight, making dramatic statement necklaces easy to wear. The many color options make Lucite a stand out design material. "My wearable pieces are a contemporary distillation of ancient handcrafts and jewelry, the ornament of indigenous peoples, and interpretations of nature," said Rayburn. "I love to blend art and history with form and function, combining traditional and innovative contemporary techniques to achieve dynamic color, texture and pattern effects."
Jenne Rayburn's Vintage Collection includes collar-style statement necklaces as well as necklaces with bobbles, dangles and pendants. Lucite bead bracelets and earrings complete the look for a coordinated ensemble. "With vintage Lucite jewelry, each bead radiates a lovely internal glow, unlike average plastic beads," said Jenne Rayburn, founder and designer of Jenne Rayburn Handcrafted Jewelry. "Individual beads also may be accented with various color flecks such as silver or gold glitter, or light to dark swirls of a single color, giving them depth and intensity." Lucite comes in a variety of colors, including shiny opaque, clear and jewel-like semi-transparent, yet always has a distinctive shine.
