Michele Wyckoff-Smith's Profile

About

I think about metal as a drawn line or personal sculpture. Organic motifs become bold, graphic shapes in a collage of contrasting textures and forms. Silver wire is drawn into abstract silhouettes within chains, which develop into asymmetrical patterns repeated throughout my work. Hand-carved pieces of wax evolve into silver or gold rings that are miniature sculptures worn on the body, sensuous to the touch.

My pieces can be worn in a number of different ways. Pendants double as rings, bangles become elements in necklaces and clasps are featured focal points. As I work, I ask myself, “How can this be worn a different way?”
