Creative Features - Annette Piper

I know I mentioned my competitive streak in my last Creative feature post ... one facet of that is jealousy. When I see talented jewelers designing such stunning pieces my little green jealous friend rears his ugly head. I try to tamp it down by appreciating the beauty that others create.

Annette Piper is one of those jewelers who has an eye for color and combines her stones in a stunning array of jewelry...and who makes my little green monster jump up and down. *grin*

One of the pieces I found on her site that I just fell in love with is this stunning Spring bracelet. I love the combination of springtime charms and bright spring colors.

Annette is definitely not afraid of color and uses it liberally throughout her work. I love her combination of dark red coral with white freshwater pearls.

It takes skill to put together stunning color combinations without looking messy or random and Annette pulls it off spectacularly.

Visit her blog and check out more of her work on her website.

Megan - I'm BLUSHING! I've always loved your work - it's so wearable! Whereas some of mine takes a bit of confidence to don!
