Rob Boyd's Profile

About

I graduated from Rhode Island College in 2009 with a BFA degree in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. My work, currently, is focused on the exploration of transforming recycled bottle caps and other found material into beautiful jewelry and interesting objects. The art and design found on (beer) bottle caps has always captivated me. I try and alter the look of them to change their original context. Deciding how each bottle cap visually conects to the other and rearranging them until i am content with a cohesive design, is an intergral part of my process. I have to reconfigure the pieces, much like a puzzle, multiple times before creating the final product. My goal is to create an original work of art that is asthetically pleasing to the eye and envoke a sense of complacency in the viewer. I love to think I am doing my part to recycle by repurposing the bottle caps into pulchritudinous works of art. Trash is treasure.
