Ladysmiths of Instagram


Those of you who have known me for a while, know that I am a silversmith and stone lover.  My grandma got me started collecting Native America turquoise jewelry when I was a little girl, and I’ve been doing it ever since.

For those of you stone and silver lovers new to the scene, there is a huge community of like-minded people on Instagram.  You will finds silversmiths, lapidaries, jewelry collectors and just about anything and everything to do with handcrafted silver jewelry.

I am perpetually amazed and inspired by the talent of my fellow silversmiths and the gorgeous eye candy they share on Instagram.  A quick Instagram search will show you all sorts of beauty created from metal and stone by Instagram’s leading ladysmiths.  Here is a not-so-short-list of artists you will want to follow if you love silver and stone as much as I do!

Was I right, or was I right?  There are definitely some seriously talented gals shaping silver.  If you dig the jewelry on this list, be sure to check out the Instagram hashtags #ladysmith and #turquoiseoverdiamonds for some more gorgeous shots of handcrafted silver and stone.

Until next time, I hope you are all enjoying some of that hot summer sun.

Peace & Love,

Nikki Leigh

  1. What an incredible collection of silversmiths. I have had my eye on quite a few of these and thank you for showing me some new ones. Arrok’s scrimshaw makes my heart go pitter pat. And the living lichen stones are enchanting. I do wonder if I could keep them alive since I kill even air plants. Thank you for this beautiful round up. Lots of fodder for my new Mermaid Treasures series that features handcrafted jewelry.
