For those of you who started reading my posts from my first blog, you know that I was the Editor in Chief of See Pretty Things, an accessories blog that introduced various readers to many indie designers. One of my favorite designers that I'm so pleased to know (although we have never met in person but we chat back and forth via email and FB) is Victoria Tillotson who is not only a metals designer for her own line of gorgeous jewelry but, she teaches at the School of Visual Arts via their Continuing Education program where you can learn how to create your own sterling silver jewelry - you can see her Spring 2010 Courses right here! For those that have been students, what an excellent way to get to know the designer, find out how you can make pieces and of course learn from someone who understands the industry as her pieces have graced the pages of Lucky Magazine, Elle.com and In Style as well (she has also been on HSN). I may see you in a course next session as I'm a huge fan of silver and would love to make pieces of my own (although she has courses that teach gold and silver)! Above are items from her collection that would be perfect for a gift and as always, the links are clickable!
