Congratulations to Brenna Dittmar and @kswain43, giveaway winners!
I'm sure I've spent more time assembling this post than makes sense, but what a joy it's been to pore over all of the beautiful jewelry in Taylor Twigg's Etsy shop, Taylor's Eclectic! You'll find wearable paper art in the form of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets... all shapes, styles and colors.
Royal Blue Forget Me Not Necklace
Taylor surrounds the tiniest pieces of translucent paper with sterling silver or 14k gold and waterproofs them with sealant.
Lily of the Valley Dangle Earrings
She keeps her unique process close to the vest and who can blame her? What she achieves is truly unusual and artful.
Ampersand Spiral Cuff Bracelet
A master of detail, Taylor finds her specialized hand sculpting process to be meditative and explains that she loves working with paper because it is such an underestimated medium.
Twilight Sparkle Bubble Necklace
Calla Lily Necklace
(even the clasp is gorgeous!)
Taylor studied history and photography in college and was encouraged to pursue an artistic career. Clay sculpture was her first venture, but then she turned to jewelry making and hasn't looked back.
Winter Tree Necklace
As with every piece in my line, these Forget Me Not earrings have been individually hand sculpted. Each earring half is sculpted to match the other half in the pair as much as humanly possible. Wear them in the rainiest, snowiest, hottest climates without fear. They will wear as any piece of fine jewelry would.
Teal Forget Me Not Earrings
The earrings are soldered to hand sculpted sterling silver earring posts. They have been work hardened as well as tumble hardened for strength and durability. The backing is a sterling silver butterfly earring nut.
Petite White Forget Me Not Earrings
Now about the giveaway! Taylor Twigg will be sending a pair of Forget Me Not Sterling Silver Post Earrings to two lucky winners. This is an international giveaway. Each winner will be able to choose flower color and size: Petite (.20 inch or 5mm) or Standard (.50 inch or 13mm).
