Like Wearing a Love Letter: Colleen Baran jewelry

                      

I adore handmade designs; they send out so much of the creator's personality. As I laid my eyes on these gorgeous rings from Colleen Baran I just knew I had to have one. Colleen is a Canadian artist working in jewelry, photography and book-works, with a creating philosophy "based on a love of language, pattern and form".
