The Veranda Collection: A Touch of Victorian Elegance

Something about the elegance of clay roses, often displayed against filigree, ornate backdrops, gives the pieces from Katya Valera's exclusive Veranda Collection a certain Victorian look.

Clay and resin rose jewelry are actually what first attracted me to Etsy and to learn to make jewelry to begin with, when I was searching for bridal party jewelry for my wedding.

Each rose begins as polymer clay fit into a mold and then carefully popped out, baked, cooled, glazed, and glued to its chosen base over a period of a few days. Quite a process to get to these results!

These clay flowers can be made in virtually any color, and with single or mixed colors. Have a color combo you'd love to see? Just let me know, and I'll see what I can do!

The Journey Collection: For Every Day of Your Journey

You may have noticed that every Katya Valera piece is part of one of several exclusive collections. The first of these is the Journey Collection.

Here is just a sampling of the many Journey Collection pieces.

All one-of-a-kind necklaces.

 The Journey Collection includes all the pieces perfect for everyday wear—to work, to school, just out and about.

So much variety!

True to Katya Valera’s limited edition tradition, the Journey Collection pieces are just as unique as those found in the other collections, but their styles lend them especially well to everyday wear, and they're often the pieces that you’ll find yourself wearing with everything.

Which one do you love?
