Fossil necklace by Dana Jansen.
A self-taught wire wrap artist, Dana is always striving to find new ways and techniques to express her ideas. The art of wire wrapped jewelry involves using precious and semi-precious metal wire and the most basic tools to capture a stone without the use of solder or glue. She is constantly looking for new ways and techniques to frame each fossils, mineral or semi-precious stones from around the world, using either sterling silver or copper wire to frame its beauty. The goal is to transform it into a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art with a unique, intricate, yet delicate design.
