artjewelsz's Shop Announcement

I use shell forming, fold forming and raising techniques to create graceful forms that follow the patterns of nature. Using silver, gold, copper and bronze, each piece is handcrafted in silver, gold or bronze with added textures and patina.
The clean lines in my jewelry reflect an endurance within nature... the beauty of seashells washed ashore a thousand times,... the delicacy of veins outlining the leaf that has long since crumbled and blown away.
It is this tension between the stamina and fragility in nature that infuses my work with a life of its own. - Sandra Zacharia / artjewelsz
