Adriana Laura Mendez is a whiz at wire crochet jewelry. I featured this Argentinian some years ago. Back then her collection was known as Zircon Jewels. Her work wowed many readers and continues to be outstanding.
Her new collection is now on Etsy. She calls her store Timeless Wearable Art which suits her exquisite and meticulously made wire crochet jewelry.
She describes her crochet style as unconventional weaving, where the "jewels and sculptures are created on a spiral curl-styled woven base." The technique produces results that are certainly different from others I have seen. Adriana works in precious metal wire - either sterling silver or 14K gold filled wire.
Adriana makes a range of jewelry types but she clearly enjoys making bracelets and cuffs. One of my favorites from her store is this cuff embellished with pearls and Swarovski crystals.
Regardless of type, all her beautiful wire work pieces are unique and timeless.
One incredibly lucky reader will win a beautiful pair of earrings. There are 3 pairs in sterling silver or 14K gold filled wire to choose from:
