For What It's Wirth

There was a stretch when The Mavens would stop people on the street, in bars, at restaurants in Portland and ask them, "Where did you get that amazing necklace?"

Now, we don't have to ask. We know the answer: Willa Wirth made it.

Wirth creates jewelry that's at once delicate and substantial, but never fussy. Her swirls of silver dance in the light. They're solid. Kinetic. Sculptural. Which is no surprise: Wirth studied sculpture at UMaine and went on to explore large metalwork, welding and blacksmithing before transitioning to jewelry.

Today, she creates stunning designs in a beautiful, tiny studio on Congress Street. We're particularly fond of her Wave line, but everything she makes is gorgeous.

Stop by and treat yourself to something. Then maybe we'll stop you on the street.

Willa Wirth Silver Design is located at 99 Congress St. in Portland. For more information or to order online, click here.
