Dalkullan Jewelry is a must see jewelry shop! Heather creates such a variety of gorgeous pieces.
To let you get to know Heather and her shop a little better, I took an excerpt from her shop profile:
"Hi! My name is Heather, and I love jewelry -- it's beauty, it's utility in brightening our lives (and our wardrobes!), and that it can be passed from mother to daughter; a little piece of history, joy and a sign of love. I try to infuse that passion in the jewelry I create.
My education is in physics. I worked at the world's most powerful particle accelerator before becoming a stay-home Mom. I enjoy gardening, woodworking, embroidery, reading, sailing and of course, jewelry design and crafting.
My store name, Dalkullan means a "girl from Dalarne" a province in Sweden, which is where my Aunt was born. For years she ran a successful Swedish import shop in Chicago, named Dalkullan. I chose this name to honor her memory, and her and my father's courage and spirit of adventure in coming to the United States from Sweden."
Every piece of fabulous jewelry found at Dalkullan Jewelry is made with the highest quality materials. It certainly shows! I quickly found three favorites. The first piece is vintage inspired, the Retro Flair Bracelet. The red and white beads are beautiful. There is also a matching pair of earrings and if they are purchased together you get a package deal. The Hammered Brass earrings are stunning. They are totally hand fabricated. The shiny finish is such an attention getter! Heather will also make them with a brushed finish. The Carnelian Dreams Necklace is one of my most favorite pieces in her whole shop. The semi-precious carnelian and sterling silver are combined to make one amazing necklace!
Heather has so many other great pieces. To see them all visit http://DalkullanJewelry.etsy.com.
