Isabel Jewelry is located at 21 N Franklin in Pinedale. This business features the custom-made jewelry by artist Isabel Rucker. Each piece she creates is one-of-a-kind and a small piece of art. Isabel hand-makes her jewelry of 100% recycled sterling silver and gold.
Isabel purchases precious metals from a mill that specializes in using only Earthís existing metal supply, meaning that this mill does not buy metals from mining companies. When it is necessary to obtain metals from other sources, they are bought from other earth-friendly refineries that only use recycled metal. Any secondary refinery is required to provide in writing full disclosure of its metal sources.
The desire to be environmentally-friendly is an important part of her creative philosophy. She creates beautiful earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings with fine gem stones and precious metals.
Isabel has recently begun to incorporate local Wyoming jade into her designs. Jade is Wyoming's official state gemstone and it is found in the heart of the state in the desert and mountains between Lander and Casper. Wyoming's jade comes in a variety of greens as well as grey and black. She and her husband custom cut and polish the stones and each piece is totally one-of-a-kind, hand cut and hand set in her custom designs.
While youíre browsing in her studio, enjoy the display of photography around the walls. Isabel often has contemporary photography and art displays in her shop by local and regional artists. The exhibits change every 2 to 3 months.
If you have an idea for a special custom jewelry piece you would like to have made, Isabel does do custom work and she enjoys working with people to make a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece. She also can do jewelry repairs.
Isabel embraces social media and can be found on Instagram (@isabeljewelry), Facebook (Isabel Jewelry), Pinterest (isabeljewelry) and Twitter (@isabelrucker). Her website is www.isasbelrucker.com
