Real Women Wear Concrete and Pearls

Seattle artist Frances Smersh designs jewelry utilizing rather unconventional materials. Her work currently incorporates concrete, which is colored with dry pigments before being poured into sterling silver bezels and paired with fresh water pearls.

"What IS this?" our customers often ask. They are always thrilled and delighted to learn that this gorgeous jewelry with its clean lines and spicy color is actually make of cement. As Frances likes to say, "Real women wear concrete and pearls!"

Gallery Fifty always has a great selection of earrings, pendants and bracelets. We can also special order rings and cuff links. Give us a call if you're interested in learning more: 231-932-0775.
