House of Fashion jewelry explains: what is "couture". "Couture" means every item

is a total creation from the minds ofElaine Coyne and Sheriden Starr. We create

each item by first developing a wax form as a mini sculpture or the design is drawn

on paper. Then the item is handcut and hand-forged. Making shapes and styles

unique to Elaine Coyne Galleries.  Final finishes are done in the same way that

our ECII collectionsare completed. The metals that are cast or hand forged allow the

patinas, antiquing or mirror finish to achieve the highest level of finishing in our studio.

The applied finishes simply take differently on castings and hand forged metals.

  • Abstract Lost Wax Cast

    Abstract art is a major art movement of the 20th Century. The concept

    thrives on non representational art and it is defined by shapes, forms,

    colors and textures. This is the essence of "Abstract" by Elaine Coyne.

    The metal featured is bronze in this new lost wax cast group. The shapes

    are multiple, the forms are geometric with a lovely organic undertone, the

    colors vary with the verdigris patina, as in our one of a kind finish particular

    to only Elaine Coyne collectible artwear. The textures are so tactical you can

    nearly feel them by feasting your eyes on these sensational and inventive

    pieces. This line is magical in its derivative elements and sensational in its

    coloration. We have achieved it all: texture, color, form and shape.

  • Ancestors

    Ancestors are an important factor in who and what we are in the here

    and now. As we search for the elements that take us back to our past

    history, we find many twists and turns. Whether your heritage is European,

    represented by garnet, or American Indian, represented by Turquoise, we

    all have come to the great American melting pot to affirm our position as

    an American. Ancestors is the twists and turns of our past with a foothold

    in contemporary America.

  • Etched Collections

  • Fan Fare

    We have taken the symbolism of the fan in Japanese culture, which represents

    longevity and prosperity, and once again adapted its essence to a lovely Lost Wax

    Cast bronze jewelry group called Fanfare 2017.  The use of an odd number of fans

    is representative of good luck.  When wearing these symbols expect good luck in

    your daily world.  I have found this to be symbolic, nonetheless it brings a wonderful

    boost to my day.
