Folk Stories Around Your Neck

I found the most funky, most colorful, most outrageous jewelry today!  I have never seen anything more spectacular than the pieces made by Kristin Holeman.  Not only do her pieces have an immense about of detail, she uses every colorful stone and enamel that you could think of!

At first I thought this was a picture of statement rings she had created, but upon a closer look I found they were actually bracelets!  They remind me of the bracelets that you see on DIY Pinterest boards that people have made from vintage pins and earrings.  Bold and brilliant!

She makes everything from rings to earrings and necklaces.  What I really like is the way she described her pieces.  On her Instagram she states “Not a jewelry, but a folk artist that tells stories…”.  I really like that statement because you can literally see her stories in her pieces.  Its not just about making them beautiful, its about creating a story.

And if you look at the detail on these pieces you might forget that they are meant to be jewelry.  Her metalworking skill is simply fantastic and you can see the time she takes to make each piece unique.

What I think really makes these pieces pop are her use of stones and enamels.  Its like she created these pieces in metal and then brought them to life with stones and enamel.  Tell me these birds don’t look like they are ready to fly off these earrings?

These pieces are definitely not for the faint of heart.  But you can rest assured that your jewelry is going to stand out no matter where you are!
