Zier Jewelry - Modern Western Designs
As a jewelry artist I want my work to viscerally connect and empower the wearer through beauty and sometimes knowledge. This connection may be a reminder of the romantic night sky or the healing of a physical or emotional wound. My work is inspired by the ancient landscape and traditional cultures around me and expressed, and sometimes challenged, through modern designs. I often incorporate Wyoming stones, leather craft or found fossils into the work.
A voracious student of my craft, I am always experimenting with traditional and non-traditional material.
People ask, how I come up with ideas? A lot of the time it's just like this, playing with shapes I find interesting.
Draw an outline, maybe some sapphires here or maybe some rough diamonds there, maybe a shape....What if, why not.
