|Pamela Branch began designing handmade jewelry in 2005. She was introduced to the art of jewelry making by colleagues, who invited her to join a beading group. After the first few minutes of that introductory meeting, Pam was hooked. She started out with simple handmade earrings and handmade necklaces, but quickly graduated to making complex, elegant pieces, like sterling silver, filigree jewelry, by using advanced jewelry making techniques, such as soldering.
Designing jewelry renewed Pam's desire to create. She started painting abstract art in college, but due to the demands of school and her subsequent career, Pam painted infrequently. Once Pam began designing jewelry, she started painting regularly and had her first art exhibition called "The Dagger Collection" at Sip Lounge, in Harlem, in November 2006.
Opening night of the exhibition not only marked the commencement of Pam's art show, but it also celebrated the launch of PamBranchDesigns.com. While her website has displayed Pam's paintings and wall sculptures, the main focus has always been her elegant, handcrafted jewelry. Pam prides herself in making affordable, handmade jewelry. She selects her beads, wire and other materials with the utmost care.
Each piece of jewelry on PamBranchDesigns.com is accompanied by a detailed description as to color, size and materials. Pam beautifully incorporates pearls, Swarovski crystals, gemstones, glass beads, wood beads, resin beads and other materials into her designs. Her wires and chains are primarily sterling silver and 14k gold filled, but she also makes copper jewelry and brass jewelry.
