Featuring Anica Gabrovek-Annie Jewelry

Today I'm featuring another jewelry artist working in bronze wire, Anica Gabrovek, aka Annie, from Croatia. Is it something in the water there because there seems to be an inordinate amount of talented wire artists in eastern Europe. I hard a hard time choosing 4 photos because all of Annie's work is spectacular. Be sure to check out the rest of her work in her Etsy shop.

Wedding Earrings

I actually have been making things this year even if I got behind in posting so I'll try and get a few up. My nephew Ben got married to the lovely Brittany on July 31. This was just after he graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree so we're very proud of him. I made these earrings to go with my dress which was a pale yellow silk with a watercolor-y floral design on it. The stones pick up the colors in the dress. The frames are a little big because I changed my mind at the last minute and put different large stones in them. I lost count of how many gemstones are in these but they include hydro quartz, garnet, amethyst, mystic quartz and green onyx. Yes, they are a bit heavy but I didn't notice after a while.

Featuring Louise

I've been asking people who purchase bronze wire from my Artfire shop so send me pictures of what they've been doing with it and I'm loving the results. Today's featured artist is Louise from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You can see more of Louise's work in her Etsy shop. Thanks for sharing, Louise!
