As you know I took jewelry design and silver-smiting classes for recreation when I was in my senior year in college and when I was in graduate school. Thus, I have a knack for unique jewelry pieces. Today I would like to introduce you to Hana’s Czech glass flower necklaces and a Murano Sterling silver glass beads ring that you can purchase at Uno Alla Volta.

Hana’s Czech glass flowers necklace

The patriotic inspired red-white and blue necklace has a nice Bohemian style perfect for Independence Day parades, parties, picnics, or just so with to dress up a simple jeans and T-shirt look. If patriotic colors are not so you, you may like to know that the artist also made a beautiful limited edition in yellow and white with a daisy and butterfly. ❤ Perfect for up-styling a simple summer dress.

These necklaces are made in traditional Czech glass-making tradition. The colorful glass flowers are on a memory wire which will fit most. The necklace I am wearing in this post costs $178. The daisy with butterfly necklace is smaller than the patriotic one and costs $118. There are also matching 1 inch (2.54 cm) in diameter flower earrings for both for $48.

As shown in the outfit photos the glass flower necklace is easy to style. It can also be worn beyond Independence Day when the styling is right. I wore the outfit with the polka dot dress to work on Casual Friday and got nothing but compliments on the beautiful necklace.

Murano Sterling silver glass beads ring

I really love this turquoise silver foliage infused glass beads Sterling silver ring from Uno Alla Volta. The silver infused beads shimmer so nicely with every move and break the light in an interesting way. The design is so contemporary despite using the centuries old tradition of Italian lamp work techniques. The artist Lorena who made this ring, lives on the Island of Murano is world famous for their artists’ great lamp-worked glass beads.

This ring also comes with silver and pink silver infused glass beads, gold infused glass beads, red and green glass beads. Which one is calling your name? The rings are very affordable for just $48. Given that no one ring will look exactly like the other and the amount of work that is involved making such a ring, the price is nearly a gift. Don’t you deserve one? 😉

The style of the ring allows you to adjust the size to your finger. Thus, you can wear it immediately upon arrival. No stop at the jewelry store needed, i.e. no follow-up costs.

This ring matches well with Hana’s glass flowers necklace, but also is a great accessory for casual weekend looks and business casual work looks alike. Psst, there are also matching glass studs for $38.

Do you like artisan made unique jewelry pieces? When was the last time you bought yourself jewelry? Have you had a look at Uno Alla Volota’s newest collections? What is your favorite? Let me know, I am curious what you love.

Lizzie’s playful, girlie gingham dress was my favorite. A classic cut and pattern with a trendy twist. I like that once the sleeve embellishment trend is over cutting off the sleeves’ lower part permits wearing it as a classic summer dress. What a smart buy! Lizzie is the blogger at Lizzie in Lace was my favorite. I love the simplicity of this casual look. It looks so effortlessly stylish. ❤
