Handmade jewellery by Paula Chavez

26 April, 2012

It’s rare these days to find something exquisite that is truly handmade – individually crafted by hand with lots of love and attention. The works of Metalsmith, Paula Chavez, are made in this way and are definitely worth a look on your next visit to the market.

Hailing originally from the US, Paula is a lawyer by profession but after arriving in Australia two years ago following seven years in Europe, she now prefers to spend her time creating beautiful works using her skills in metal work and gilding. Her jewellery range including rings, earrings, cuffs, bracelets, pendants and necklaces, mostly made from silver, have proved very popular since she began as permanent stallholder earlier this year. She gets lots of repeat customers looking for original silversmith pieces and her iconic ring – made from silver or gold and including gorgeous embossed flowers and leaves with stones like garnets, citrine and white topaz – sells very well. Paula has also just branched out into producing gilded home wares including clocks and candlesticks.

You can meet Paula and browse and buy from her collection each Sunday at the markets.
