Inspired by Lake Superior!

Silverwaves is a design studio, gallery, and so much more! Check out this video to see the fabulous public art installation we created outside the gallery. Stop by to relax, contemplate the beauty of our area, and of course, shop!

Using materials from the natural world, Silverwaves Jewelry owner and metal artist Lissa Flemming, creates jewelry that reflects the spirit of the places and people she has met on her journeys across the globe.

Using native stones like Lake Superior basalt and agates set in sterling silver, each piece is a personal reflection of a moment in time. Lissa’s spirit is a part of each item, and she believes every piece finds its rightful owner.

Learn more about Lissa and the Silverwaves story through her recent interview on Almanac North, produced by PBS North.

Jewels on the Water: Two Artists Share the Inspiration of the Islands

The Apostle Islands have long inspired artists, from songwriters to painters, potters, and poets. Recently, two local artists – photographer Jeff Rennicke and silversmith Lissa Flemming – combined their talents in a unique tribute to the inspiration they find among these islands.

I believe the pieces you brought over last night suit my wife particularly well, and pleased her very much. That means a lot to me. The list of designers whose work she will wear is very short, and as of now, you are the star. I rarely find pieces she’s willing to let me buy for her.

I am so excited to wear the ring! You have quite the reputation for beautiful pieces! I wear my Spectrolite pendant frequently and hear the compliments like, “That’s from that lady’s shop in Bayfield!” I find myself picking out clothes so I can wear it more often!! Thank God we wear royal blue scrubs because I wear it everyday to work!!!

I am absolutely thrilled with the pendant art. The Lake Superior pendant is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It captures the spirit of the lake, and I will be thrilled to wear this for decades to come.

For years I have searched all around the lake for such a magnificent pendant and never found what I desired. Now, I have what I have sought for so long and have you to thank for what you’ve designed and bringing my search to a fully successful conclusion.

Custom Designs

If you are interested in working with me on a custom piece, please contact me. We can set-up a time to discuss your one-of-a-kind, custom project.

Feel free to bring stones, metal, old jewelry, simple or elaborate drawings, and your ideas. Also, think about your metal and stone preferences, budget, and size of the piece. I am currently working with sterling silver, yellow gold, and copper.
