RedAvaDesigns is an eclectic jewelry line handmade and designed by Roslyn Broder in Chicago, Illinois, using traditional and non-traditional metalsmithing and enameling techniques. My work includes vintage and contemporary beads and components, natural stones, hand-forged enamel, sterling silver, copper, brass, and bronze. Many pieces are one of a kind.
My influences range from Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern design to Surrealism and Asian art. I love the beauty of natural and organic forms and patterns, and strive to incorporate these images, shapes, and colors into my work. My goal is to create unique and affordable art that you can wear and use every day, and won’t find anywhere else.
RedAvaDesigns consists of three original and distinctive jewelry lines:
1. Vintage Reimagined: Unique vintage components from all over the world repurposed into modern jewelry with a retro flair.
2. Modern Enamel: Modern techniques revitalize an ancient and beautiful art form. Sometimes combined with hand-etched metal.
3. Organic Metals: Hand-formed, etched, stamped, and hammered sterling silver and copper jewelry utilizing stunning, semi-precious stones, as well as jewelry created from natural materials and vintage components, in bronze and sterling silver, using lost-wax casting.
Most sterling silver pieces are crafted from recycled sterling silver. Please note that all silver ear wires are sterling, unless otherwise noted. Antique brass, copper, and gun metal ear wires are lead and nickel-free. Surgical steel ear wires are also available. A free gift box is included with your order.
Many of our earrings can be converted to a post, or a screw or clip-on earring. Just ask!
