I saw some wonderful jewelry by Tracy Matthews profiled in the latest issue of Modern Jeweler magazine, so I had to do some surfing to find out more about this talented artist.

I am very partial delicate designs because, for me, heavy jewelry is not that comfortable to wear on a day to day basis, and practical jewelry girl that I am, I like to have jewelry I just put on quickly and go and be comfortable all day.

I discovered more of her work and a little bit about her on the Emeralds web site:

Matthews enrolled in her first jewelry fabrication class in her early 20s and discovered her creative path. By experimenting early on, combining color with metal, Matthews planted the seed for her future collections. Soon after, she was designing and selling her delicate jewelry to a succession of friends, families and bridal parties when she realized her first market. Her inspirations come from a collage of elements, including her yoga practice, spirituality, a love of color, nature, travel, and vintage jewelry. "I am fascinated by life in all its essence, and how the blending of fashion, art and culture melt together. I have always designed around a color story, and love pairing the uncommon," says Matthews. "My hope is that whoever owns my jewelry will treasure it for a long time."
