Art jewelry, Designer Jewelry, Gregory Pyra Piro, Gabriel Pyra, and The Piro Group
Art jewelry, designer jewelry by artist Gregory Pyra Piro and the Piro
Group has been a long multi generation tradition in the family.
Piro art jewelry is made in a unique way and is formed into a unique
form. Every jewelry piece is a work of art, created entirely in
free form. Unlike most jewelry today, which is made in either
casting or is stamped, Piro art jewelry is made by hand and the free
forms are made with a torch with careful precision soldering, which is
something that takes a long time and a lot of skilled talent to master.
Therefore, each piece, even if based on a similar or even the same
design will come out a bit different, unlike it would in cast pieces,
and each piece is one of a kind even if based on a particular design.
The Piro art jewelry is made in sterling silver and 14 karat or 18 karat
gold, and sometimes all gold. The designs for center stones often
have facet cut gem stones such as: amethyst, blue topaz, citrine,
garnet, iolite, peridot, green
tourmaline, or any other different colors of tourmaline. Alternately sometimes cabochons of
opal are used. Side stones, which sometimes are also major parts of the design pieces can include:
drusy, mother pearl, and
Australian opal. Pearls,
moonstone, can be placed either as center or side gem stones. The center gem
stones in many Piro design jewelry pieces frequently come in such combinations as:
amethyst and blue topaz,
amethyst and garnet,
blue topaz and peridot,
citrine and garnet,
citrine and peridot, and
come with another color gem stones. Sometimes gem stones can
double up as two amethyst stones or two blue topaz stones, for example.
And simpler pieces may have a single gem stone. Piro art jewelry
includes combination pieces such as
ring pendants, and some unique creative pieces such as the
The Peace Sign Trend Returns
Nowadays, when it comes to jewelry, the most commonly used peace sign of all is the one coming from
the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. This model has revolutionized the world of jewelry, more and more people being interested in this simple,
but very interesting type of accessories. You can buy
peace sign earrings, gloves, scarves, rings, necklaces, bracelets, pins and even moccasins or bags.
Good examples of why this piece sign thing has turned into a real trend are film festivals and social
events as such. Designers create whole lines with peace symbols, so that people have where to choose from. Although jewelry with peace signs on
it has this hippie touch, it does not necessarily mean that people are returning to the hippie fashion. Jewelry with
peace symbols has a new approach, new models are being released on the market, some more elegant and chic than others.
The symbol used for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is the most popular among fashion designers
today. However, it is not the only peace symbol used in this industry and known to the entire world. Peace is also suggested by signs such as
doves carrying olive branches or both of these elements taken separately, these having their origins in ancient times. As for more
recent such symbols, the one mentioned in the mentioned in the beginning is completed by the V hand sign.
The success of the peace sign jewelry is somehow unbelievable both among ordinary people and among
celebrities. From ten-year-olds or grandmothers to the first family of the United Sates of America, everybody is fond of this kind of
accessories and appreciates the aesthetic value of this peace sign jewelry and other accessories. It seems like there are fewer and fewer
people who do not have at least a
peace sign necklace, a pin or some peace sign earrings at home.
The piece sign can now be found in all kinds of jewelry. Therefore, you
can find plastic peace sign accessories or you can run into this symbol
with some of the most sophisticated jewels released on the market today.
In the past, there were a lot of comments when people decided to wear
this kind of jewelry, but fashion today allows this new trend without no
inhibitions and no comments whatsoever. In fact, this retro
peace sign trend is very well received nowadays from a social point
of view, too, not only from the pure artistic one, promoting values and
models in a very stylish, contemporary and everyday way.

Fine Jewelry & Handmade Jewelry Together in One
Jewelry is either fine jewelry, such as gold jewelry in jewelry stores, gold jewelry with
diamonds, gold rings, diamond rings, gold charms, gold chains, or any kind of
commercial production jewelry that is made of gold that is offered in jewelry stores, that has real gemstones such as
diamonds, and even has certificates, but an artist has never seen such a piece with
his live eyes or even touched it with his hands much less even made it.
Or jewelry is handmade jewelry, craft jewelry, handcrafted jewelry, or jewelry that
is made by crafters or artists, where the jewelry pieces are not made
usually from solid gold, and often not even from sterling silver. This type
of artist or crafter made craft jewelry, handcrafted jewelry, or handmade jewelry often is made
from steel, or from copper and only has the look of sterling silver and solid gold jewelry, and has glass or
cubic zirconium instead of real
tourmaline, or even emerald,
sapphire, ruby, or
diamond. Of course why the market of jewelry in gold and silver with real
gemstones probably is may not be strong is because no one has the opportunity to examine a
lady's handcrafted jewelry pair of earrings, a necklace, or a ring at an eye's glance when it is
worn in public, and such ladies get away with thinking no one will ever
know. Yes, but someone wearing the jewelry still does know. Then there is
also the handmade jewelry, or craft jewelry that is the so called handmade
by artists and often also is called handcrafted jewelry, but does not even include rings because it is only beaded
jewelry offering only necklaces, earrings, and bracelets,
and such craft jewelry or handcrafted jewelry although again will sometimes even look nice,
someone wearing it knows it does not require a very highly skilled
professional specialist to bead a strand of beads. Beaded jewelry is
handmade jewelry but it is usually without the gold and without the silver,
and without the work of a skilled silversmith or a skilled goldsmith, a
jewelry artist, or any skilled handwork from an artist. Beaded jewelry is
handmade jewelry, and skill is needed to make such craft jewelry, but the
skills to strand beads are very basic. And then still there is the
contemporary jewelry, the European art jewelry or the designer jewelry that
is made of materials such as, for example, plastic or paper and designers
make names for themselves with such jewelry on shows. The European
contemporary jewelry is made by designers, but again this kind of
contemporary jewelry is usually without gold and without silver or handwork
of a metal artist, unless the metal is steel or copper, or other non
precious metal, and it's often only the name that counts in such craft
jewelry, handmade jewelry, or designer jewelry. But when a woman wears
a piece of jewelry, she will not be wearing a designer's name around her
neck, her wrist, or her finger, but the piece itself. Gregory Pyra
Piro is both fine jewelry and handmade jewelry by artist, at the same time.
The jewelry is original handmade and is made in sterling silver and solid
gold of either 14 karat gold or 18 karat gold and has semi precious
gemstones such as:
sapphire, and ruby. It is not only hard to find today jewelry that is really artist made, but even harder if
the artist made jewelry is made with real
gemstones, and precious metals.
Jewelry artist Piro leaf earrings #4580 are unique leaf designer jewelry earrings with the French hook. The
leaf earrings are in sterling silver, 14 karat gold, facet cut
citrine, and green

Another such nature leaf pendant is Piro nature pendant #3016 in sterling silver, 14 karat gold, orange
labradorite changes color if you move the pendant around, which creates an interesting effect.
Piro nature leaf pendant #3015 has popular fashion colors and is in sterling silver, 14 karat gold, facet cut
labradorite. Pieces with
labradorite can be made in
special order pieces.
Unique Jewelry Made in a Unique Way
Gregory Pyra Piro art jewelry designs are made in sterling silver and 14 karat gold, and the rings, pendants, earrings, brooches, and bracelets
are mixed metal rather than just silver or gold. Most jewelry manufacturers, designers, and even artists today who work in gold and silver work in wax
that produces molds for casting. And many silver jewelry artists, work with wire jewelry.
Gregory's jewelry, not only that it is different, but it is made in a unique way. Some components are handmade with tools
and some parts of the pieces are made with a torch. These are unique techniques that jewelry artists in Europe used to work with before many
jewelry artists and jewelry designers have switched to wax work and casting. Though there are limitations to work with these techniques metals like
white gold, it is possible to work with these techniques in sterling silver, yellow gold, and pink gold. But what is most important is that with
the techniques which Gregory works with, it is only possible to make one of a kind jewelry.

special order by jewelry artist Piro in 18 karat gold,
green jade, pearls, and Australian
opal. The green side leaves are in
green jade, and the other leaves are in 18 karat gold.
Showing a few examples of opals in Gregory Pyra Piro art jewelry. The
Australian opals are shipped to us straight from the opal cutters in
Australia. Unlike Australian jewelry or jewelry with just opals alone,
Piro art jewelry gives a nice home for the Australian opals among a
neighborhood of a whole lot of different color gem stones. The
Australian opals in Piro art jewelry designs as shown in images can be
intermixed with gem stones such as: amethyst, blue topaz, citrine,
garnet, iolite, peridot, tourmaline, moonstone, diamond, ruby, just about
any gem stone. Sometimes the opal can even go with glass, sea glass,
amber, and ammonite, and Piro art jewelry shows that the opal can be applied
in many creative ways with other gem stones.
How to Get Started With a Jewellery Collection
Jewellery has the power to make the wearer feel glamorous irrespective of its cost, size or design.
From the simplest
pendants, to the most elaborate
each piece communicates something unique and special about the personal style of the individual who is wearing it. Unlike clothing,
jewellery also often appreciates in value as the years go by, meaning that it is also a good investment for the future.
How do you start a collection though? Well, you can’t just go out and buy items at random; there are several steps to follow in order to achieve the best result.
Evaluate your Personal Sense of Style
The first thing that you need to consider is what types of jewellery goes with the image that you wish to portray.
A good way of gauging this is to take a look at the clothing that you wear and think what it says about your personality,
for example if you wear
shoes then you might be edgy and subversive but if you are a fan of Clarks shoes then you might be more reserved.
Once you have decided which aspects of your character you wish your jewellery to reflect then you are ready to hit the shops and see what is on offer.
Hitting the Shops
When you first start frequenting jewellery shops to look for potential purchases,
it is important not to rush into anything. Take your time and examine each item thoroughly before opening your wallet.
It is advisable to start with items that are unlikely to go out of style.
These could be
rings, or even
sculptural jewellery pieces;
it doesn’t matter, just as long as you think that they are likely to still be in fashion ten years down the line.
Nowadays the Internet enables jewellery collectors to browse a huge range of pieces from the comfort of their own homes.
This increases the amount of items that they can choose from by a hundredfold but also holds a number of pitfalls.
The first of these is the ease with which collectors can get carried away and purchase the first item that they see when browsing jewellery online.
Remember: the Internet is a big place and there are plenty of pieces to consider.
The second is the temptation to go for cheap and nasty jewellery.
The web is filled with sites offering cut-price bracelets and necklaces but it is important to keep in mind that if something seems too good to be true then it usually is.
Finally it is easy not to notice how much it costs to have an item of jewellery shipped over to you when you are buying from a shop overseas.
Remember to take into consideration the shipping fee when making your purchase.
Take Care of your Jewellery
Once you have decided what style of jewellery you like and began to establish your collection, the next step is to learn how to take care of it.
It is important to find out how to clean it in a way that is not likely to damage it.
There are different rules for cleaning different precious materials, for example diamonds can be cleaned by immersing the stone in a solution of ethyl alcohol or ammonia.
If you are unsure of how to clean an item without damaging it then it is advisable to pay an expert to do it for you.
There is no point eagerly expanding your collection only to ruin it by attempting to clean the pieces using a method that is going to leave them in ruins.
It is also essential to pick jewellery to buy that is unlikely to break, as there is nothing worse than amassing a huge collection of broken jewellery.
Above All, Enjoy your Collection
The most important thing to remember is to have fun with your jewellery and wear it with pride,
as the confidence with which you sport it will add to your look just as much as the unique and exquisite pieces themselves.
Many people build up their collections throughout the course of their lives and then have the pleasure of
handing them down to their children so each piece that you buy will not only help to establish your sense of
style but it will also provide a precious reminder of your life for your loved ones to treasure.
