Etsy Finds Friday - Handmade Wire Wrapped Gemstone Jewelry

It's **Etsy Finds Friday**
Today I am featuring the 
Beautifully Designed 
Handmade Wire Wrapped
Gemstone Jewelry
Created by:

of Care More Creations

In the Artist's Own Words:
ABOUT MY JEWELRY
Each piece is handcrafted swirling and shaping wire by hand, while each individual gemstone inspires my design. The color of the wire, the curves and swirls of the wire setting and the little baubles I add enhance each stone's personality. The stone speaks to me through its own unique characteristics of shape, color and striations. I shape, swirl, loop and tuck the wire with no use of heat, glue or solder, allowing me to artistically express myself. Mother Nature has been my best teacher and always my inspiration. My one-of-a-kind wire wrapped jewelry is as unique and dramatic as the person who wears it.

ABOUT ME:

I was born in a small town in Northwest Pennsylvania where I was raised on a farm by two wonderful loving parents. It is there where I learned to love and appreciate nature in all its glory. I currently live with my husband on the Kenai River in Alaska where I am surrounded by beautiful mountains, soaring eagles, splashing salmon and of course the occasional wandering moose and bear. I draw my inspiration from my surroundings, family and friends. All my life I have loved to create...since childhood when I discovered that my hands and my heart were my best tools! You name it, I probably attempted to create it. But my love of nature together with my love of fashion has inspired me to create this dramatic line of jewelry. I have finally found my niche. I LOVE making these unique treasures. Every morning I can't wait to get up, put on a pot of coffee and make another one!
