Somewhere in the Argentine Pampas - about 100 km outside Buenos Aires - is the studio of metalsmith, Cynthia Del Guidice. There in her "antique rural brick and adobe home", she creates her one of a kind nature inspired enamel jewelry. Her organic approach appeals to those who love minimalist designs.

Cynthia said, "My latest collection of enameled jewelry is inspired by the plants I am surrounded by. I started collecting leaves and plants from my field and garden, usually weeds with interesting silhouettes that I find in my walks. I press, dry and use these plants as stencils for my enamel work. I pick contrasting colors, or embrace the natural colors of the copper oxidizing under a clear enamel coat."
She uses a number of vitreous layers. Truly wearable art!
