Jewelry has been the perfect medium where I can spend a lot of time in such a small space. It is this small space that I am attracted to and what keeps me making work. I am able to take a rolling pasture and shrink it down to a condensed version but [...]
I have been exploring the line between disgust and intrigue through my artwork. Why are some things disturbing and fascinating at the same time? This work is the merging of a beautiful object and an uncomfortable thought. I am often inspired by the natural world around me. Moving to Seattle has given me [...]
Anachrony Gabriel Craig and Amy Weiks pursued a collaborative body of work from September 2009 to August 2010. The resultant jewelry playfully combined their disparate interests in historic decorative motifs, kinetic jewelry, implied narratives, line, and jewelry mechanisms. While sampling many design paradigms – such as the mid 19th century conventionalization of botanical [...]
My work is an exploration of such a space. In my sculpture, the viewer is confronted with the vulnerability and frailty of the body as well as the violence inherent in consumption and digestion. My material choices are designed to both attract and repulse, highlighting the beauty intrinsic in the visceral, the convergence of [...]
The traditional forms, colors, and textures of jewelry inspire me, and I enjoy taking a familiar silhouette and turning it on its head. Inserting paper adds an element of intrigue, as hidden and repurposed jewels are transformed into concealed mysteries. I approach this series with reverence for forms of adornment popular in the 18th [...]
My current work talks about the different functions jewelry performs in society. Objects of personal adornment have the ability to define a person’s social status, question value and serve as a redeemable investment. Often given to mark a special occasion or milestone, jewelry can also perform on a psychological level with the transference of [...]
Two years ago, Lisette Fee published a post on her blog “Eilisain” about Marissa Saneholtz where she said: “The best part about her work is the irreverent and tongue-in-cheek commentary on traditional womens’ roles in society. She tells the story of the traditional 1950′s woman who has had it with [...]
It has been said that, in humans, rhythmic and repetitive movements encourage introspective or creative thinking. As a maker I have adopted this practice and find that it eases the mind when the body is testing and acting as a reminder of impermanence. The ideas of fragility and human/animal connectedness are central themes [...]
My work is a journal of my life and experiences in the Pacific Northwest. I keep track my memories in the jewelry and paintings that I create. Jewels by Kathleen Faulkner who is currently participating in the group exhibition “Women Working Words” at Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery in Seattle. [...]
My recent work explores ornamentation and adornment in contemporary culture. I am particularly interested in the psychology of adornment and the experience of jewelry as images. By exaggerating and obfuscating formal characteristics of familiar jewelry -shape, form, color- my work explores the aspects of jewelry that cultivate desire. [...]

Katie’s work implies of a sense of history, and is sensitive to the delicate relationship between beauty and decay, as well as our relationships to precious objects. Her work combines the opulence of faceted stones and gold with surfaces that reference provocative textures, colors, and spontaneity found in natural growth and oxidation processes. [...]
The Victorians kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love. In much the same way, I secure my memories through photographic images rendered in lines of my own hair, the physical remnants. I do not reproduce events, but quiet [...]
“I wanted to talk about abundance, but suddenly knew that I was actually talking about what is not there, the void, and I found myself again making bowls, hollows filled with nothing or almost nothing. Since then, I kept on looking for hidden places, old hiding places, crevices, containers of many things and of [...]

Observation is the act or instance of noticing. As a resident in a new and foreign place, my power of observation has become important to me in unusual and often unexpected ways. It has also become heightened in a way that allows me to simply see more. Over the course of more [...]

My body is the instrument which allows me to relate to physical space around me. Creating an object to be worn on the body influences my concept of reality as it changes the physical space around us; how we interact, with whom and in which way. And how we interact with the jewellery. This is why I make jewellery. [...]
A few days ago an American friend on Facebook suggested that I view the work of this jeweler. These are some of his jewels as sculptures. You can find more information on his website, on his Crafthaus page, and I also recommend that you read the post about him on the Six Eighty Eight [...]
