Swan-Themed Furniture, Woodwork, Jewelry and More
The graceful, long-necked swan has a vastly different cultural significance from region to region. From Danish fable The Ugly Duckling to Greek mythology’s creation of the “swan song” notion, it’s clear that there’s a long-standing fascination with these creatures.
Here is a sampling of some amazing swan-themed items on CustomMade that are worthy of this animal’s grand reputation.
First we have this gorgeous jewelry box made by Jeff Baenen Boxes. It is entitled “For Kjærlighet” which means “For Love” in Norwegian and was made as Christmas gift for the wife of a friend. Jeff has written a wonderful description of the materials and process of making this jewelry box which you can read here.
Here are some delicately lovely swan earrings made by silversmith Denim and Diamonds Jewelry. They are made using the lost cast waxing process and are available in silver or gold. And, don’t forget, since they are made by hand, if you have ideas for customizing these earrings in a special way (perhaps with your favorite gemstone), you can contact Patricia at Denim and Diamonds Jewelry to see if she can accomodate your customization ideas.
Behind the stovetop in this gorgeous Arts and Crafts style kitchen is a swan and duck themed mural which was hand drawn by an artist and then executed by Cabinets and Design Iron LLC of Gardnerville, NV. The cabinetry is also by Cabinets and Design Iron LLC who specialize in many different trades.
And lastly here is this stunning art nouveau swan bed by William Doub Custom Furniture. Between the carved swans are pond scenes made of inlaid wood depicting dragonflies, lily pads and more.
