Nicky Ruxton's Profile

About

My pockets usually have worn bottle caps, rusted washers or other miscellaneous findings in them that eventually work their way into my jewelry. I find inspiration in fashion (think Project Runway), old school graphic artists (Frank Stella, Aubrey Beardsley, Peter Max), contemporary architects (Maya Linn, Frank Gehry, Julia Morgan), product design (Michael Graves), jewelry (Thomas Man) and nature (Andrew Goldsworthy). Everything and anything can be the catalyst for bringing a great new design idea forward.

This jewelery is where my graphic design background and my passion for mixed media collage converge.
