There are many wire jewelry artisans out there. So it is a pleasure to come across one who creates one of a kind designs in her own inimitable style. Izabella Bako is a Romanian self taught artisan whose flare for wire shows in her woven wire creations in her store, Wire Fantasies on Etsy. She also has a Romanian based store called Bella Bijou.
She is adept at wire weaving but what stood out from her work is how the wire "flows" so easily into unique shapes. Iza also has a talent for being able to select just the right approach for her complimentary sets. Some of my favorites are featured here. For instance - many might be tempted to just make a tear drop pendant to match the tear drop earrings below. But not this artisan. She integrates the teardrop pendant into a curved focal! Highly original and inspirational!
Iza also has a Facebook page.
