Hand-fabricated

Untitled

Through my work, I want to interrupt typical ideas of gender as they relate to jewelry and fashion. I am interested in bringing forward the ornament, objects, and ideas that are usually found in the periphery. Through deconstructing and reorganizing…

What the Sun Will Bring

This piece begins with my interpretation of connection. As a medical illustrator, I connect science and art every single day. Metalsmiths use science to create art all of time by combining alchemy, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, formulas, geometry, oxidation, electroforming, reactions…

The Upside Down Lantern

Here is my first attempt at “The Upside Down” lantern. Inspired by the houses in “Stranger Things” and complete with the gate between the two worlds in the floor. You can wear /or hang/ the lantern both ways – the…

Fractured

This pendant is part of my series “Fractured”.

Mineral Vein – Explosion ring

“Swing that hammer, light that torch, and make that magic happen.” I use the most basic earth elements and fire to create jewelry that blends nature and human interaction. Each piece is brought to life by my spirit, fire, and…

Blurred Memories

It frustrates me that I have only fragmented memories of my childhood and “Blurred Memories” depicts that loss. Hidden inside the round structure, is a small book that contains obscured images, segmented prints and handmade paper illustrating a glimpse into…

Zelda’s Breakfast

Through creative expression, we work to understand the world around us. Science does not exist without creativity; new ways of looking and expression lead us to new discoveries and models of understanding. Re-interpret to identify, re-represent to become part, to…

Pierced and Fabricated Sterling Silver and Coral Cuff

“If you think it through you could set a potato chip.” These words from a wise faculty in a grad stone setting studio resonate every time I set an unconventional object into a piece of jewelry. Odd the random things…

Connecting Ink

My work engages human nature’s desire to connect. Through making, I explore how objects act as intermediaries between people. This work reflects on the delicate balance and navigation that happens when we intertwine our lives with others. Inspired by relationships…

Bird Without Feathers

“Birds Without Feathers” pendant is created on a cold rolled steel base, with blue and purple hues from heat patina and metallic accents from fused fine silver and placer gold. Copper electroformed butterfly wings and a copper bird skull are…

Playing Field

Playing Field started with a 1966 postage stamp that came my way on a package. (Who knew such old stamps were still valid?) My attention was drawn first by the vivid color scheme, but it was held by the image…

After the Bath

We see things. Clouds become dragons, fields become rolling seas. Bits and pieces become something. I found this on the ground and knew immediately what it would become..

Flower Power

This body of work represents a nod to tradition in pattern and shape while also reflecting a modern voice by way of material investigation and use. Harking back to hand made quilts and doilies, Angela Caldwell gives honor to the…

Carry On: Staycation

Is a staycation really a vacation?

Composition # 2

I am passionate about jewelry and strive to explore meaning when my jewelry is worn. My inspiration comes from rapid three-dimensional sketching with metal and non-metal materials such as powder coating, tin cans, paper, rubber, and painter’s tape. Using this…

Mining Disaster

I like to think of my creations not just as jewelry but as beautiful pieces of art.  My favorite materials to work with are sterling silver and hand picked semi-precious stones. I utilize artistic techniques such as reticulation and keum…

Extinction Vessel #9: Genocide

I am an artist who has been working in metal and enamel and writing haiku poetry for over forty years. I have created vessels, which reflect themes, colors, textures and the beauty, severity, and mystery of the natural world. My…

Dreamy Days Necklace

Art is a conversation. Jewelry provides an opportunity for people to engage in a conversation with the world. Expressing your unique personality through one-of-a kind, handmade art connects you intimately to a creative force. For me, art occurs at the…

Nightingale Necklace

This necklace explores in tone and color the merging between earth and sky, and the gracefulness of a bird’s flight and song rising in the night. Pearls signify wisdom gained through experience and repetition, while the flash in labradorite is…

Obsession

To understand one, you have to know two, and understand two you have to know one. Within ourselves, we find these reflections of tension which keep us in a state of questioning. Inside these gray areas, I wallow between what…

Bronze Flowers Clarity Bangle

Shaping metal into forms inspired by textiles and silhouettes traditionally found in fashion has been a passion of mine, for some time. This statement bangle is both a frilly bell cuff on a sleeve and a dress for the arm….

One Day You’ll See

This body of work investigates the human use of sight to understand our interpersonal relationships with one another. Drawing from historical and contemporary use of the lens to amplify and distort our sight as a way to speak about our…

Gravity

Gravity is a site specific installation that uses traditional blacksmithing techniques to create seemingly dropping and melting steel “organisms.” These creatures come from dark portals fixed on the walls and emerge from pedestal-like boxes; shelves and platforms stretch out to…

Arabesque Broccato

My jewels are driven by a delight in the body-adorned, as well as a narrative implicit in each piece. It’s my intention that the jewels, intrinsically wearable art in precious metal, enamels, and gemstones, are made to be experienced, flaunted,…
