Have a flare for the unique and different? Well this is the jewelry for you! Marina Smith is a local artist who's current work embodies a Victorian Retro-Futurism that is whimsical, lovely, and unique.
Each creation has a story to tell, all her works are one of and kind and unique. Using actual vintage mechanisms and time pieces dating anywhere from 1815-1940 adds a playful mechanical element to the designs, creating an air of illusion and magic. Inner gears and ornate script exposed to the eye reveal the workmanship of a bygone era. Pride was still taken in each handcrafted component.
Many of the pressed pieces used are still stamped from the original molds created from the early 1800s-1940s. Sterling fill is done in the old style, giving each item a heavier silver surface than modern day counterparts making the far more durable.

Don't see what you are looking for? Marina makes dozens of different designs. We couldn't possibly feature them all. Her designs are always changing and at any given time we may have several that are a limited run. The above pictures are a mere sampling of her work. If there is something you have in mind, simply send us an e-mail and we'll be happy to help.
Note: These pictures are here to give you a sampling of Marina's work. These specific pieces may no longer be available, however if you like a certain piece another one can always be made within the same theme (i.e. If you like "Merlin", we may not have the one pictured, but we more then likely have another "Merlin" that looks slightly different due to the mechanisms and watch pieces being unique to each piece).
