Charity Hall's Profile
I have been making jewelry since 1997 when I took a jewelry class by a wonderful teacher in college. I studied biology and spent my college summers learning Colorado's native flora, identifying plants and collecting herbarium specimens as I traversed prairie, foothills, canyons, and mountains. With my passion for botany and entomology, I create jewelry with biological imagery. My botany loupe became my stone-setting loupe and a few more tools have been acquired, but my work as an artist is still based on the tiny intricate details and fascinating biological stories that first captivated me. The majority of the silver I use is recycled; most of it directly (scraps are melted into ingots and then forged/rolled to useable sheet in house).
