Introducing Cerca Jewelry! Today's CityCraft Handmade Holiday Happy Hour Featured Artist.

Today’s featured CityCraft artist is Laura Wetzel of Cerca Jewelry.

Laura is an accomplished jewelry artist whose designs are funky, bold & modern. Her hand-crafted pieces reflect a unique pairing of materials perfect for work or play. Laura skillfully hammers, oxidizes, tarnishes & brushes sterling silver & blends it with copper, plastic & rubber to create works that dazzle, “with a nod to old Hollywood glamour.” Her sexy chic jewelry makes a strikingly elegant statement anytime.

As Laura explains on her website, “What is CERCA, you may ask? Jewelry. Jewelry with a little bling and a lotta moxy. These are not your mother’s pearls. We gave those back. Honest.
Well she wasn’t using them, anyway.”

Laura is another extremely talented member of Etsy Pittsburgh & we are thrilled to have her on the team!

And so we welcome you to Navarra on December 18th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm to shop local, shop handmade, and see Cerca Jewlery along with numerous other talented artisans.
