Texas Jewelry

Texas Glory & Texas Pride – handcrafted, fine silver jewelry with a copyrighted design based on the Texas flag, for a pride as big as Texas.  Here, you can find Texas Glory hat bands (black & brown), earrings, pendants, bolo, cuff links, jewelry sets. Artist Shirley Matteson designed and copyrighted all of the pieces. Of course, all of Shirley’s Texas flag designs are truly unique, one of a kind silver jewelry. In addition, they are made using the cloisonné technique, and use her custom designed Texas flag design.

We asked the artist how she came up with this copyrighted Texas Glory design for her silver jewelry, and she answered:

“The fall of 2018 I was asked to draw a design to be judged. It was for an award to a country western singer’s foundation. I had no idea what was wanted. I asked about what kind of design and was told ‘something Texas,’ as this person was a Texas boy.

All I could think of was the Texas flag. Being put on the spot and without any preparation, I scribbled out a quick sketch of the flag from memory.”

Then, her Texas Glory jewelry line came directly from that copyrighted design. From that original sketch, she went on to adapt the design to all sorts of jewelry and accessories, for both men and women.

Now, Shirley uses the Cloisonné jewelry making technique to create her Texas Glory pieces.  Find out more about the ancient art of Cloisonné here, or take a look at how she used the process to create her Texas Glory earrings.
