Handcrafted Metal Jewelry by Bonnie Beyer

I recently had the opportunity to photograph some of Bonnie Beyer's unique, handcrafted jewelry. Bonnie has been designing pieces for 33 years using a variety of materials such as Swedish horseshoe nails, hand-hammered brass and copper, sterling silver and wire. If you happen to be in Chautauqua, NY, you can check out Bonnie's one-of-a-kind, seasonal art gallery/gift shop, the Art Loft. The spacious gallery has 40-foot ceilings, 5 rooms, and represents the work of over 100 artists in all mediums.
