Artist: Bling It!
Bling It! takes an ordinary piece of servingware, adds beads, crystals, semi-precious stones and wire-wrapping to create a beautiful piece of functional art. All of the items produced by Bling It! are unique and personally designed and created by Marilyn Kelemen. Nothing is mass produced. The wide variety of colors, shapes and combinations of beads used creates eye-catching, spectacular pieces of art that grace any table and bring pleasure, pride and joy to the owner.
Bling It! started as a creative endeavor to make gifts for family and friends. The pieces of servingware were so well received that the creative endeavor evolved into a business showcased at art shows and gift shops in Florida, North Carolina and Michigan. The functional pieces of art produced by Bling It! makes great gifts for:
Bling It! uses 20 and 22 gauge silver-coated, copper wire. The wire contains no lead or nickel. Jewelry cement is used as an anchor where the wire-wrapping ends. Each bead is strung on the wire and wire-wrapped around the piece of servingware.
Each piece of servingware is designed to be used. The beads and wire are securely wrapped. The beads used include glass, crystal, semi-precious stones and metal. The servingware will withstand normal use. Although the servingware can be put through the dishwasher, it is not recommended. Dishwasher detergent is more harsh than liquid soap and has a tendency to darken the wire over time.
