Wire Wrapping with Colette

This week as part of my commitment to the Handmade Artists Forum blog ring, I get to share with you the awesome jewelry designed by Colette.  When you visit Colette's Boutique, you will be blown away by the delicate beauty of her designs.  I have chosen three pieces to share with you...
We'll start with the earrings.  These Blue Turquoise Earrings aren't what I would typically think of when it comes to wire wrapping.  And that's why I love them! The wire coils make the perfect petals and with the beads in the center, it creates very pretty flowers indeed.  These are sterling silver, but then have been slightly oxidized to give them this great color.
Now on to the necklaces.  I chose this Silver Wreath Wire Wrap necklace because of it's originality.  Colette wrapped this in a free form style, so it is truly unique and a OOAK.  And the tiny pink swarovski crystals just make it sparkle.  Like the twinkle in the eye of the woman lucky enough to receive this as a gift, because while Valentines Day may be over, what a perfect lasting gift to hide in a box of Easter chocolate.
And now to highlight your wrists...this Renaissance wire wrap bracelet.  To me, anything Renaissance (or Victorian) is a must have, because it speaks of romance and being feminine, and love.  What really caught my eye with this bracelet was the photo presentation, my eye was brought back to this piece time after time.  Hmmmm, maybe I need to get it for myself.
I hope you enjoyed the wonderful creations I have chosen to share from the shop Colette's Boutiques, and if you just click on any link above you will be whisked away to her shop or each item, for a closer look.  You can also become a fan on Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.  And don't forget her Blog.

If your an artist, the Handmade Artists Forum is a great place to meet other artists for support, inspiration, and fun.  And they also have a "sister" site where you can purchase items.  I have a shop there along with having a shop on Etsy.  So come and check it out!
