Enameled jewelry always arouses our interest.
We are enamored with the detailed and intricate
enameled work that Jessica Calderwood
creates because she has a wonderful
ability to make it look like it's hand painted.
Most of her pieces depict the
human face. We are inspired by her
ability to create nuance and subtlety in each face,
and we especially enjoy the fact
that while each facial feature is shown in
exquisite detail, the emotion
in each remains enigmatic.
Here is an example of her lovely work
called "Modern Mary."
Here is another brooch called "Chew and Swallow."
and here we see a piece called "Blink."
And we have to include one of our favorite brooches
called "Hair Curlers."
The details are superb.
The craftsmanship is wonderful.
We are inspired in more ways than one.

We'd love to hear from you.
