I create expressive objects of personal adornment that combine imagery, typography, and poetry. My most recent work conveys a sense of altered reality that reflects my experience of the coronavirus pandemic.

Teresa Kiplinger is a studio jeweler and poet. Inspired by personal narratives of memory, isolation, and loss, she employs multiple techniques and skills in her expressive pieces such as hand-painted vitreous enameling, chasing and repoussé, etching, and original writing.
