One of the classic themes with decorative jewelry is to use animals as the design inspiration. Many of these are meant to be for everyday wear, but Mary Pritchard at Hammond Bay Jewelry came up with elegant animal jewelry that can be worn to even the most elegant events.
The difference is in the materials and presentation of these earrings. Instead of using traditional metals, Pritchard creates her designs with porcelain tiles. The fineness of the porcelain tiles creates a classy look that transforms the normally ordinary animal ideas into something special. The HB tiles are usually decorated with dragonflies or a paw print.
