Just in From A Great Shopping Trip To Florida

Happy spring to everyone!  Here’s a quick question that you probably know the answer to.  Where do a lot of women retire these days?  Florida, of course!  We have just returned from an excellent shopping trip there where we bought over 100 pieces of unique and beautiful antique and estate jewelry!  Victorian, Art Nouveau, Retro for example---rings, earrings, lavaliers, bracelets, and lockets in gold, gold filled and silver, even some cool Limoges pill boxes that we couldn’t resist.  As always, our pieces are in excellent condition and very affordable.  We’ll be putting some more of these on here in the new arrivals section this spring,  but for today here’s a peek!   We have all these in stock, please contact us for prices and more info.  Enjoy!

The Silver Forest Story

As Unique as You.

Crafting inspired jewelry is what we love to do. We celebrate what is special and unique and enjoy sharing it with you.

Founded over thirty years ago, Silver Forest started selling its distinctive jewelry at craft shows throughout the Northeast. We are widely credited with developing the first casual earring line. Today, Silver Forest jewelry can be found in retailers throughout the United States and Canada. Silver Forest jewelry is Handcrafted in Bellows Falls, Vermont.

Our mission at Silver Forest is to create wearable art that is as timeless and unique as you. Natural elements, ancient cultures and a subtle sense of humor influence our designs. Our artistic use of stones, textured metals and color has always set us apart from our competition. Denim friendly and casual, Silver Forest is not a trend, it is a lifestyle— which is why we continue to be a top selling jewelry brand.  Silver Forest has been voted #1 by Gift Beat Magazine for three years in a row!

High Quality. Hand Crafted.

Our earwires are surgical steel or surgical steel with an 18k gold overlay. Our earwires are nickel-free, as there is no nickel used in the plating process. This is a significant benefit to our metal sensitive customers who can buy our earrings with confidence.

We use genuine semi-precious stones. We also use glass beads, natural materials, and genuine Austrian Crystal to accent our jewelry.

Our metals consist of raw brass or copper elements. Each shape or disk is cut and rolled out with our proprietary textures. We use scores of different textures and over 1000 shapes. All of our jewelry is lead free and cadmium free. The gold tone finish is a tarnish resistant 18k gold over brass, the silver tone finish is a tarnish resistant rhodium over brass, and the copper finish is a rose gold over brass. All of our jewelry is soldered together, never glued. This creates a slight variation in every piece, which gives the ambiance of wearable art.

We use three distinct color processes in the finishing of our jewelry. It is important to note that there will be slight color variations in the jewelry due to the different textures on the metal and how each process adheres to a particular piece of metal. The ceramic color process is a heat baked process that creates depth to each piece. The colors are opaque and because the finish is baked, the ceramic will last longer than the paint processes. The second color process is a hand painted color wash. The wash medium is a special formulation containing acrylic and lacquer, which creates a very durable translucent finish. This color process is used to reveal the texture of the metal and have a sueded silk appearance. The third color process is epoxy, which gives the metal a glossy sheen.
