2021 Best in Jewelry
Custom designed jewelry with precious metals and unusual stones.
My jewelry is created only with sterling silver, fine silver or 14 kt gold designed with unusual stones and gemstones. I seek out unique stones from around the world and have been very fortunate in meeting excellent rock hunters and stonecutters. Each one of a kind piece is fabricated. The process begins with the silver/gold sheet and wire, which is then formed, cut, and soldered into the final design. In forming the metal, various types of tools are used, such as hammers, rolling mills, chisels, and my hands. I also like to use movement and different types of surface finishes on the metal to highlight the piece and the stone it holds. Each piece is signed “M. Frayseth” on the back.
Marcy Frayseth grew up in Petoskey, Michigan with the shores of the Great Lakes as her backdrop. As a young person, she experimented with different types of medium, primarily working with watercolors. As her experience grew, she was drawn to the intricacies of metalsmithing. Designing and crafting jewelry has become her avenue of expression for over twenty years. Her work has been on exhibit at the John Michael Kohler Art Center -Triennial Eight Counties Exhibition and won awards at fine art shows in the Midwest.
