GUEST POST BY MISSY FERRARO
On u jewelry is created by Donna Silvestri who is now based in Richmond, Virginia. What began as a hobby while commuting on a train each day to Manhattan has become a complete jewelry line with bracelets, necklaces and earrings. This special and unique jewelry line is sold in select boutiques, on line and in the Richmond store. I knew the day I spotted it, that it was exceptional. People are always inquiring where I purchased my Gatsby bracelets and I have in turn, given quite a few of Donna’s pieces as gifts.
On u jewelry features intricately made hand beaded necklaces, bracelets, earrings and anklets that are created with glass, vintage and semi-precious beads. Many of the pieces include antique or vintage buttons as a finishing touch and some are even one of a kind.
Two of my favorites are…..
The Slip Knot: sterling silver rings and baubles slipped between specialty knots and brown leather finished with an antique button….$90 onujewelry.com
The Gatsby (in bone): real antique bone hand sewn onto rich brown Grecian leather…..$60 onujewelry.com
Check out the complete line at www.onujewelry.com and let me know which is your favorite?
