Weekly Feature and Giveaway: Etincelle Design {Closed}

This week's giveaway is from Etincelle Design


Denise of Etincelle Design has been creating things (wire decorations) and experimenting with different materials (vintage finds, leather bags) for many years. (Denise currently is deconstructing and making candelabras from brass wallmounted lamps.) More recently, Denise started making jewelry and opened up a few shops online. Etincelle Design is now filled with pages of contemporary earthy wire wrapped and metalsmithed jewelery inspired by tribal design, as well as wallets created from pieces of hand-cut leather.

When designing jewelry, Denise enjoys to work with copper, brass and silver - metals which have been traditionally used for ornaments, and she can't get enough of the beauty of natural stones. For her wallets, Denise like remaking and reusing leather, although she also buys larger offcuts and whole skins to get pretty finishes and a variety of colors.

Denise's main inspiration comes from ornamental and decorative traditions from all over. She finds it fascinating to learn about the significance of different materials, and specific motifs or items in a social, religious and historical context.

In addition to Artfire, Denise's work can be found on Etsy and Shophandmade. You can also keep up-to-date with Denise by following her on twitter, visiting her on Indiepublic and/or reading her blog on Artfire.

While you are looking around Denise's Artfire shop, take advantage of her special offer - 10% off your order for the duration of this giveaway and the week following it. When checking out, leave Denise a message telling her you were referred from this post and she will refund the difference via PayPal. This offer is only valid in Denise's Artfire shop.

This week, one lucky winner will receive a Hand-cut Leather Wallet with Stud Closing from Etincelle Design.
