Pilbri on Etsy brings you unique art and designs handmade in the heart of the “Rhineland” in Erkrath, Germany.  In this special area, gaining its name from the Rhine river that flows through, shop owner Britta Neumarker designs precious glass and silver jewelry out of her studio. Britta refers to her jewelry shop as ” Rhinepearls” jewelry, meaning precious like beautiful pearls.  Atelier Pilbri has been in existence for over 10 years. In 2005 Britta founded her “Studio Pilbri” originallyil_570xN.1241219931_tszc as a studio for painting, which was later joined by the addition of photography. In 2010 Brita was taught the technique of fusing glass by a glass designer and quickly perfected her technique. Having been fascinated by glass since her childhood, she was a quick learner and soon after starting developing her own designs. Britta’s jewelry collection and designs grew as she then learned to work with silver. She is now proud to offer a variety of different collections of jewelry featuring glass and fine silver jewelry including real gemstones and pieces with fine gold application embellishments. All of il_570xN.1179278437_11gfPilbri’s jewelry pieces are handcrafted and unique designs so each piece she creates is one of a kind.

It is hung on a Sterling silver Omega Collier, that fits the necklace perfectly. This necklace would be a lovely present for someone special! The design combination of fine silver and gold on this pendant makes this piece truly unique. Also featured here is one of Pilbri’s precious glass pendants with a sterling silver bail. This piece of jewelry is an eye-catcher as a result of the dichroic glass that shines in different colors. It is paired with a bright yellow necklace with a sterling silver lobster clasp, which helps bring out the colors in the pendant really making this piece stand out!
