Meet the Artist, Cori!

ORIGINALLY FROM THE COAST OF NORTH CAROLINA, I GREW UP SURFING, PLAYING VOLLEYBALL, CLIMBING MAGNOLIA TREES, BUILDING FORTS IN THE WOODS AND EXPLORING UNINHABITED INTRACOASTAL ISLANDS IN THE SUMMER. SINCE I WAS A YOUNG GIRL, I LOVED COLLECTING SHELLS AND JARS OF FOSSILIZED SHARKS TEETH. I BECAME FASCINATED WITH GEMSTONES WHEN I TOOK MY FIRST TRIP TO A FLUME MINE IN THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS. I GOT TO SIFT THROUGH A BUCKET, UNEARTH AND IDENTIFY THE STONES, THEN WATCH THEM TRANSFORM FROM RAW TO POLISHED. ON THAT TRIP, I WENT ON MY FIRST HIKE AND BECAME ENAMORED WITH THE MOUNTAINS, STREAMS, AND WATERFALLS.

I STARTED JEWELRY MAKING AS A FORM OF ART THERAPY, AFTER A LIFE ALTERING ACCIDENT WHILE LIVING IN NYC. GIVEN MY ACTIVE LIFESTYLE AND A TWO YEAR RECOVERY AHEAD OF ME, I WAS DESPERATE FOR A CREATIVE OUTLET. THE ACCIDENT, HOWEVER, LED ME TO DISCOVER MY CREATIVE PATH AND A NEW PASSION FOR LIFE. IN 2015, I BEGAN COPPER ELECTRO-FORMING AND TRANSITIONED TO SILVERSMITHING IN 2016.

I WORK FROM MY HOME STUDIO WITH MY SON ZARI AND DOG INDY BY MY SIDE. I’M INSPIRED DAILY BY THE MAGIC OF MOTHER EARTH AND MY CONNECTION TO HER. I SOAK UP THE BEAUTY THAT SURROUNDS ME WHILE HIKING, SURFING, AND DIVING, AND TAKE THAT INSPIRATION TO MY WORK BENCH. THE STONES I MOSTLY WORK WITH MIMIC THE ALLURING BLUES AND GREENS OF THE OCEAN.  THE WAVES, SEA LIFE, NATIVE PLANTS AND GROUNDING LANDSCAPE ARE FOREVER MY MUSE. 

I HOPE MY CREATIONS EVOKE ADVENTURE, INSPIRATION, HEALING, INNER STRENGTH AND A DEEP APPRECIATION FOR THE NATURAL BEAUTY SURROUNDING YOU.
