I am happy to introduce some new items to the Stefanie Marie Designs etsy shop! These pieces are handmade by me, and use a variety of materials that I have fallen in love with. The base material of these pendants is real dyed snakeskin, mounted on either brass or aluminum sheeting. One of the skins I have is over 7 ft long and still has the snake’s face/eyes/nose on it! I love wearing these over a simple tee shirt, and I think it makes a polished statement anywhere from brunch to work to a cocktail hour.
These first 2 pieces are my personal favorite, as they have a kind of eclectic glamour that I am drawn to. I love the juxtaposition of the gemstones against the texture of the snakeskin, and I think the metal fretwork really represents the area of India that I was inspired by when designing these.
This next piece is my ode to colorblocking and a labor of love. Each piece of dyed snakeskin is encased in brass, with hand-mitered corners. The piece definitely makes a statement without being flashy, and I received tons of compliments on it when I wore it out a few weeks ago.
These last two pendants were born as special gifts for my friends, but I loved them so much I decided to include them in the collection as well. I like to think that they are a more toned down version of the first pendant, while still maintaining some sparkle. The inspiration around the first was to represent the diamonds on an engagement ring – which makes it a fabulous gift for a newly engaged friend or as bridesmaids gifts. The below pendant is a cool, navy blue which is versatile, understated and elegant. I like to think about it as the eye of the snake – the glass shape is truly unique – and I imagine this pendant to completely transform a crisp white shirt.
