Pina Coletta - Jewelry
My passion for jewelry design began when my husband and I moved to Alaska for an “adventure of a lifetime”. As a way to fill the long dark winter nights, I began working with colorful gemstones and natural elements to make “one of a kind” pieces. Even though we no longer live in Alaska, my desire to create interesting jewelry by combining vintage elements, gemstones, pearls, glass and metal beads, has steered my hobby into a micro-business. My craft takes me not only to gem fairs, but also to flea markets, second hand stores and garage sales, hunting for unusual items that will add charm and character to my pieces. By combining unusual textures, patterns and colors, my jewelry designs are uniquely interesting--and hopefully irresistible!
