Sarit's main occupation was music for more than twenty years. She started out in the Israeli Army Band, went on to study music at Tel Aviv University Music Academy, and then spent many enjoyable years playing the trumpet in most of the professional orchestras and chamber ensembles in Israel, as well as in theater productions.

Artist Statement

I am an Israeli artist sharing my time between two arts. On one hand, I am a musician- trumpet player in the Israeli Chamber Orchestra (ICO). On the other hand, a jewelry designer, member of the Israeli Jewelry Manufacturer Association (IJMA).

The original handmade jewelry I designed for this collection infuses my artistic vision with a very special personal touch. For me, this collection represents the work I am most proud of as an artist. The woman who wears one of these original creations will know that it is special, and it will reflect her unique beauty.

I find music and jewelry making to be complementary arts, and they provide a great way to make it through my crazy and tense daily life in Israel. My jewelry designs are all handmade in one-of-a-kind or limited editions from silver, gold, and gemstones.

Susan Barth Jewelry

27 Jun

Susan Barth's fascination with three dimensional art and ornament was always there as a child, but her formal exploration began after being accepted into New York City's High School of Art and Design, where she studied sculpture for two years. Later on, she decided to take an intensive six-month course in jewelry making, where she first learned about lost wax casting.

Lost Wax Casting
A casting technique in which a carved wax model is placed in a container that is then filled with investment plaster. After the plaster hardens, the container is fired to melt or evaporate (lose) the wax. The result is a plaster mold suitable for casting metal or molten plastic.

Considering Susan's background in sculpture, lost wax casting turned out to be her ideal medium. She then apprenticed for five years at a jewelry firm in New York City, after which she worked for Barry Kieselstein-Cord, a well known New York jewelry designer, for six years. working on the creation of his collections.

After that, Susan switched back to freelancing once again, which allowed her the time and flexibility to begin the development of her own work. A few years later, she launched her collection at the ACC Baltimore Craft Show, and was awarded the 1998 Award of Excellence for Jewelry by the American Craft Council.

Barth is adept at combining contrasting metals and textures. A piece is never complete until she's found the perfect combination and composition.

Inspiration
"In art and in nature, it is always the simplest of forms that inspire me," Susan says, "be it the subtlety of an architectural detail, or the perfect symmetry and beauty found in the arrangement of petals before a flower blooms. It's in this simplicity that sparks a deep emotional response in me."

Philosophy
Susan's work has been described as subtle, understated, and elegant – which was always her intention. "My pieces are designed to be just one element in the visual story a person tells about themselves, as they present their individuality and uniqueness."

Victoria Lansford Jewelry

26 Jun

Jewelry Designer and Metalsmith
A master of Bronze Age gold and silversmithing techniques, Victoria Lansford creates one-of-a-kind wearable pieces of art and art objects that recall the mystery and splendor of the ancient world, yet bring forth her own provocative vision. She has pushed the boundaries of design and execution in many old world techniques, including Eastern Repoussé, Russian Filigree, Chain making, and Granulation in over 19 years of comprehensive exploration of metal as art.

jewelry techniques bracelet
'Stardust on My Sleeve' Russian Filigree Hinged Cuff Bracelet
22k Gold, Fine & Sterling Silver, Koroit Opals, Russian Filigree
2-3/4" long x 2" wide x 1/2" high

Russian Filigree Technique
Technically, filigree means anything cast, handcrafted, or otherwise that has delicate swirls. The kind of filigree Victoria Lansford does is known as Russian filigree, or open back filigree. She builds the frame from 18k gold or sterling silver wire, and makes the tiny "filler" wires from fine silver for flexibility and contrast. She shapes and cuts each individual wire to tension fit it within the frame so that she can turn the piece over with the wires still in place and solder from the back. This method preserves the integrity of the patterned edge.

Victoria Lansford's award winning work has been featured in Metalsmith magazine's 2007 Exhibition in Print, Jewelry Artist magazine, Art Jewelry magazine, and on Home and Garden Television's That's Clever. Recent shows include Exploring Boundaries: Evolutionary Metal at Rochester Institute of Technology, and Framing The Art of Jewelry at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon.

handcrafted bracelet
'Inspiraled' Eastern Repoussé Cuff Bracelet
Sterling Silver, 7" around x 1-1/2" wide x 5/8" high

High-Relief Eastern Repoussé Technique
The word repoussé is French, meaning to push out. Victoria uses thin gauge sheet silver or gold, hitting alternately from the front and back to create the high relief you see. No molds are used, only hand tools.
She first hammers the design on the front of the sheet with a line tool, over a steel bench block. Next she hammers the metal from the back with oval-ended tools. She continues hammering on the front, then the back, until she has achieved the height she wants.

A long time educator in the arts, Victoria is committed to sustaining ancient techniques through workshops and various publications. She served as head of the Jewelry and Metalsmithing department at Spruill Center for the Arts in Atlanta from 1997 to 2004, and has also served as an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

sterling silver chain necklace
'Entwine' Filigree & Double Roman Chain Necklace
22k Gold, Sterling-Platinum, Fine Silver, Chrysocolla Drusy
Pendant portion: 3" long
16" chain

Two Way Double Roman Chain Technique
The first chains Victoria Lansford learned to make were Roman (sometimes called loop in loop or foxtail) chains. These chains were made by the Egyptians and the Greeks, but for some unknown reason, the Romans got credit. In this ancient method, each individual link is fused and formed from fine silver or 22k gold, and then woven together. A bracelet of the most basic pattern may have as few as 25 links, a complex necklace as many as 900.

Artist Statement

The external artifacts with which we adorn ourselves emphasize the presence and radiance within us. There is a timeless quality, just in the very act of making jewelry, the act of holding it, appreciating it, and wearing it. This exchange between the adorner, the adorning, and the adornment, is a rich tremendous ritual that spans the multicultural tapestry of humanity to frame what is beautiful within us, to adorn ourselves with relative finite works of art that represent and remind us of the beauty that surrounds us.

Much of the iconography in my work symbolizes the play of masculine and feminine forces in the universe. I'm fascinated by religious architecture, both eastern and western. The spire and the minaret are obviously phallic, yet when created in the negative as in a Gothic arch or a Moroccan keyhole, they are feminine and a metaphor for the transformational. I see these shapes as essentially tantric, simultaneously embodying space and form, and use them frequently in my work.

My passion for metalsmithing began with my fascination with New Kingdom Egyptian metalwork. As a child, staring at photographs of such works, I imagined the artists of those pieces putting their very souls into their creations as they worked and felt connected to them through the tangible artifacts they left behind.

I am aware of an intuitive relationship with fire and metal, as the flame becomes an extension of my hands. I love working on a small scale because it's art you can take with you. You can take your favorite painting to lunch, but, depending on the size of the canvas, the experience could get a little awkward, maybe even messy.

Art you wear can go anywhere. I take it all, and I wear it all. Evening wear or overalls, it doesn't matter. I'm constantly opening the lockets or spinning the rings with flipping bezels. They are my talismans, the prayer wheels of my ideas and experiences. My work isn't only about how the pieces look when worn. How my pieces make the person wearing them feel is essential.

Christy Klug Jewelry

25 Jun

Jewelry Designer and Metalsmith
Inspired by the stained glass artists in Germany, Christy Klug has created a line of large-scale sculptural metal jewelry. After studying stained glass design at the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, Christy created huge, wall-sized stained glass pieces, but having kids changed all that.

$936

Jewelry design afforded her the opportunity to work on a smaller scale, and creating wearable art personalized the artistic process for her in a way that stained glass had not. She found that she could achieve the dramatic aesthetic effect of the lead lines by hand cutting them into the metal, leaving negative space where the glass would have been.

In 1997, Christy Klug moved to her current location of Austin, Texas, where she took a class and fell in love with metalsmithing. Her line of large-scale, sculptural metal jewelry is cut by hand using a jeweler's saw. Christy strives to create jewelry that has a sense of balance, simplicity, and elegance. Each piece is crafted by hand, so her touch becomes part of the work.

Artist Statement

In metal, I have found a medium that I can sculpt, mark, and mold into beautifully organic and dramatic forms. I draw inspiration my background in drawing, etching, glasswork, and painting to create wearable art that is both sensual and theatrical.

I was drawn to the stained glass artists in post-World War II Germany, who revolutionized the medium by elevating the structural function of the lead lines into an artistic element. I'm inspired by the shapes and lines I find in the art of Jean Arp, Gerhard Richter, Egon Schiele, Johannes Schreiter, Frank Gehry, and Ludwig Schaffrath.

Growing up in Germany, England, Canada, and the United States exposed me to a rich variety of cultures, art, and architecture. As the perpetual new kid in class, I let go of trying to fit in and instead developed my own style. My jewelry reflects that same spirit of individuality.

Sarah Mann Jewelry

24 Jun

Jewelry Designer and Metalsmith
Sarah Mann is fascinated by the creative and technical challenges of transforming sterling silver into objects of adornment. She is proud to carry on a family tradition in the crafts, and pleased that this enables her to exercise her talent no matter where she lives. She creates clean straightforward designs that often incorporate kinetics.

Sarah was introduced to metalsmithing at the University of Wisconsin in her hometown of Milwaukee. She furthered her interest under the expert guidance of Heikki Seppa at Washington University in St. Louis, and the craftspeople at Fuji Studio in Florence.

Sarah then lived in New Orleans, where she worked amid its thriving community of metalsmiths and honed her skills in preparation for a transition to New York City. The dynamic nature of the city inspired the strong form and kinetic design of her pieces.

Sarah Mann has recently returned to her roots in the Midwest and continues her silversmithing there, creating bold yet elegant jewelry with unique surface treatments. The jewelry that she designs and handcrafts skillfully merges geometric and organic elements to create a style that is recognizably her own.

Mann realizes fully the broad potential of sterling silver. She crafts her jewelry with torch and tools – saws, files, pliers, nippers, drills, hammers, dapping blocks, and a rolling mill – then gives it with a range of hues through delicately controlled oxidation. The combined effect of patina on texture is a signature characteristic of all Sarah Mann jewelry.

Sarah introduces a new jewelry collection – earrings, necklaces, pins, bracelets, and rings – about every ten months. She carefully crafts each piece, and presents it as one of a limited edition. "Raw sterling silver cries out to me, begs me to convert it into bold jewelry with subtle finishes. Of course, I must obey."

Sydney Lynch Jewelry

23 Jun

Jewelry Designer and Metalsmith
Sydney Lynch is an accomplished metalsmith and designer whose jewelry includes both one-of-a-kind creations and multiples, each piece made by hand in her studio. Most of the collection is executed in bimetal, 22k or 18k gold and sterling silver fabricated into one piece, that allows the artist to contrast yellow gold surfaces with oxidized sterling silver surfaces to create the dramatic designs for which Lynch is known.

From her studio in Lincoln, Nebraska, Sydney Lynch creates both her Designer Line and one-of-a-kind pieces that include a variety of gemstones.

Colorful cabochon gems including Peridot, Aquamarine, Iolite, Tourmaline, Moonstone, and pearls are a signature in her work. The gemstones are set in 22k gold bezels. No parts are plated, so the gold surfaces won't wear through. Her jewelry is hand-fabricated, but some of the silver components are cast using the lost wax process.

handcrafted jewelry pendant

Sydney's jewelry combines bold, simple sculptural shapes in a sensual blend that results in an organic geometry. Many of the patterned textures are created by roller-printing the metal with photo-etched stainless steel templates. Other textures are created by grinding or hammering the metal against cement.

Her personal interests are reflected in her work: the natural forms of rocks and seashells that she has collected since childhood, the intriguing shapes she finds in weathered urban areas. She's also interested in tribal and ancient jewelry, and that too is reflected in her work. She explores different ways of changing the appearance of metal through roller printing, and hammering the metal against textured surfaces.

The combination of gems and earthier stones with 22k gold and silver provides the context for an interplay of color, shape, and texture. Wearability is always an important factor for Lynch. She wants her jewelry to be comfortable and graceful, as well as strong and sculptural. Her jewelry reflects classical and primitive traditions while remaining distinctly contemporary.

ARTIST STATEMENT

When I was young I loved rummaging through my grandmother's bureau drawers, enchanted by her treasure trove of costume jewelry, which she kept in a jumble of tiny boxes, each with its own story. Growing up in rural Connecticut, my passions were creating and curating my collections of objects found and acquired, and, as my mother used to say, "working with my hands." I progressed from hand-loomed pot holders to making bowls out of natural clay from a local streambed, to oil painting.

While working on the Navajo Reservation midway through college, I fell in love with the wide-open landscape and moved West permanently. Soon I met my first silversmiths who made me want to get my hands on some silver and start making jewelry.

I finished my BFA at the University of Colorado, and after ten years of making jewelry in Boulder, I settled in Nebraska, first on a farm and then in Lincoln. I now work with three assistants and my husband, Craig Roper, who manages the business end of the studio.

Recently I have been working on a series of designs inspired by the subtle, repetitive forms of the flora and wild grasses of the prairie. In miniaturizing a vast open landscape by creating these pieces, I am able to focus on the details of my surroundings which might otherwise be easily overlooked.

Working with the materials is the most exciting part of the process for me. Simply put, I like making things. In my one-of-a kind pieces, I exercise my love of color by incorporating a wide range of colored stones in endless combinations. My other body of work focuses on oxidized sterling combined with 18k and 22k gold. It's important that my work be both sculptural and wearable. Many of my designs are abstract, leaving the wearer open to create a personal, intuitive relationship with the piece.
