Shanghai Tai

Nope, it's not the name of what I'm drinking right now. 

What it is though is a lovely shop on Artfire owned by Roxanne,  an award-winning artist who creates quality, one-of-a-kind jewelry with an Asian flavor.  Why Asian flavor? Well, she lived in Asia for a time and that was where her interest in making jewelry was developed. She says it all started with pearls -- yup, those pearls get you all the time!

Roxanne has several techniques for jewelry-making up her creative sleeve - she's into wire-wrapping, metal working, glass fusing and also works with precious metal clay. 

Take a look at some of the pretties in her shop

Faith Pendant in Fine Silver

Lovely Dichroic Pendant with Retro Flowers

And let's not forget, some choice pieces for Valentine's Day

Copper Heart Earrings   

Rice Pearl Bracelet

There are also some pieces with a cool vibe

Peace Sign Pendant

And these little Pagoda Earrings are just soooo cute!

Shanghai Tai offers a wide range of pieces in different styles so I'm sure there will be something there that you will fall in love with.  Personally, I can't keep my eyes off those earrings!  She creates pieces for the blushing bride too -- so now we know where to go after that pearl bracelet is unwrapped on Valentine's Day, right ladies? And there's a whole section in her shop that's just full of pieces with a heart-theme.

Roxanne insists she's still a "work-in-progress" and is deep in the hunt for her signature style.  Looking at all these pretties, I can definitely say her signature is:  AMAZING.
