Titanium Mesh Ribbon Artist Feature with Monika Lee!

Titanium Mesh Ribbon Artist Feature with Monika Lee!

I'm super excited to feature the art of Monika Lee! I absolutely love this beautiful Golden Olivine Titanium Mesh Ribbon Bracelet! The artistry is incredible! I first saw Monika's work when she posted photos of her Titanium Mesh Ribbon creations on our Etsy site. I loved her designs and connected with her which led to a friendship. The relationships built and people I get to know are one of my favorite things about my job!

This stunning necklace says it all! I love that Monika uses our 12mm and 20mm White Silver Titanium Mesh Ribbon in beautiful layers. She has a way of ruffling the Wire Mesh Ribbon and then forming the edges to add depth and hold their place. The little nests of pearls and bigger focal pearl compliment the silver filigree. This Wire Lace Necklace says it all - it's spectacular!

Titanium Mesh Ribbon Pearl Filigree Necklace

I love that Monika's designs are all so unique! She has a tremendous talent to see the Titanium Mesh Ribbon and create her vision. She easily bridges the gap between vintage designs and cutting edge contemporary designs. She is a master at ruffling and rolling the mesh and her work reflects her perfectionism.
