Handcrafted Artisan Copper and Silver Jewellery

Handcrafted Artisan Copper and Silver JewelleryIn my artistic and craft endeavors, I find a lot of things inspiring. Nature, food, scents and flavors, sounds and music, people and personalities. There's an endless supply of inspiration out there for the creative soul and I love to tap into all those different venues.

Sometimes, I run across beads or different supplies that stir inspiration. At other times, I run across other artisans that do so.

Today's shop is one of those artisans. NicoleHill on Etsy has some of the most beautiful wire-work and chainmaille jewelry that I've seen. I've always been fascinated by chainmaille. It's one of those talents that is just mind boggling for me, with all those tiny links put together in intricate and inventive ways. When I visit Nicole's shop, I love to browse her chainmaille pieces because it reminds me that anything is possible with a little inventive creativity and ingenuity!

Nicole uses both the cool shades of silver as well as the rich warmth of copper in her jewelry, combining many pieces with gemstones and glass bits as well. She also is open to creating custom pieces to your specifications! All of her pieces are 100% handmade with care and attention to detail and are shipped from London or the south coast of France depending on where she's staying at the time.

Be sure to stop by and take a browse around. You can also visit Nicole at her website or stop by and say hi on Facebook or Twitter!

Wow, her piece is gorgeous. Copper is a pretty metal and has a different look than gold; it has a warmer, pinker look and seems to go well with a lot of different colors and stones.
