BARBARA AND RICK UMBEL BARBARA UMBEL JEWELRY DESIGN
INDIAN HARBOUR BEACH, FL
I design one of a kind necklaces made out of sea urchins and shells that I set in a combination of gold and silver. I am truly inspired by my natural surroundings - the shells I find on the beach are the origins of my designs. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques to create abstract settings that show off the natural beauty of my beachcombing finds.
Each piece is hand fabricated out of 14ky gold and sterling silver, and set with natural seashells, freshwater pearls, and gemstones.
