Emma Olivia's Profile
I have always been drawn to little bits of ephemera: seed pods and coins, wings and buttons. Incorporating materials not normally prized as jewelry or art, I rediscover the beauty inherent in overlooked objects. Using cast natural objects and fabricated traditional forms I transform detritus both manmade and organic into precious adornment. I combine materials such as sterling silver, lustrous pearls, and the hexagonal pattern of a wasp’s nest to create bold, beautiful jewelry. I translate my attraction to organic textures in the way I work the metals: silver (92.5 and higher), Japanese alloys (such as Shibuichi and Shakudo), copper, and gold.
