Roxannes Jewellery ~ The Finishing Touch, Revamped ~ Review and Giveaway

Once again I have the pleasure of introducing you to a local artisan and true designer of the highest caliber! Roxannes Jewellery is not your average homemade jewellery store filled with formula costume jewellery made from craft store beads. Roxanne's jewels are one-of-a kind and made from the highest quality glass and lampwork beads as well as semi-precious stones. Roxanne is a true artist and designer creating dazzling wearable works of art which will add the perfect finishing touch to your favourite ensembles!

Early in life Roxanne began to soak up the skills of a crafts person. She accredits this acquired wealth of knowledge to learning from her grandparents. In their workshop and sewing room she attained the skills of a crafts person but also developed her own talent as a designer who now creates contemporary yet elegant and classic pieces with the utmost care and eye for perfection. Though I am featuring Roxanne's jewellery and purses she is also involved in turning old windows, frames and furniture into beautiful decorative art. Her Revamped collection includes faux stained glass and etched glass works.

The wearable pieces I had the opportunity of donning were of the highest quality and the aesthetic they composed was exquisite. I believe my favourite of her pieces is the Spring Flower Lampwork Necklace. The centerpiece of the necklace are the delicate and eye-catching lampwork Japanese flowers created by artist Barb Svetlick. Roxanne has designed this necklace around the lampwork pieces complimenting their beauty with semi-precious beads of Korean Jade and, my favourite, the natural looking imperfection of Yellow Jasper. Swarovski crystals and Czech Glass add just a hint of sparkle! I am also wearing the matching earrings in the accompanying photograph. Delicate yet stunning I felt beautiful and sophisticated even when pairing these jewels with a simple cotton tank and yoga pants. More than a finishing touch they were truly the piece de resistance!

Another gorgeous high-style necklace is the Dramatic Midnight Sparkle Choker which I must admit is more stunning than the photo captures. It sparkles and shimmers like the northern lights apropos as the black beads have an aurora borealis finish!
From show stopping jewels such as these to the everyday wearable stained wooden bracelets and bamboo place mat handbags, Roxannes Jewels carries designs for everyone! You may wonder how a place mat can go through a metamorphosis and emerge as a delightful handbag. I can tell you it is possible in the hands of Roxanne and the result is peerless! Even the interior is perfectly detailed in lush fabric complete with inner pocket. Feast your eyes on this one in a rich teal blue, paired with Roxannes blue stained wooden bracelet. Overwhelmed with the possibilities Roxannes Jewellery could add to your wardrobe? There's more! Roxanne also creates beaded earrings and bracelets paralleling the quality of her necklaces. Unique, beautiful bobbles you cannot and should not resist--spoil yourself a little!

Roxanne from Roxannes Jewellery and Northern Mama want to spoil one of you by giving away a Luscious Red Lampwork Charm Bracelet! The creation of lampwork beads is an art in itself and Roxanne takes the best of these to compose her exquisite jewellery. The center charm of this bracelet features a lampwork bead containing precious depictions of delicate roses.
