Carla Pennie McBride Artist Statement:
Nature stirs my imagination. I am both a collector of natural artifacts and an observer of the natural world, I seek to explore the beauty and delicacy of nature, translating the delicate patterns I see into the work I create.
I love to experiment and push the boundaries of contemporary jewelry making. In my most recent work, I am drawn to the nebulous, yet static qualities of plastic resin. I freeze pieces of silver, traces of paper, leaves of gold and other minuscule fragments, capturing their essence in time. I design and individually create each element of every piece by hand and all can be rightfully considered one-of-a-kind.
Marlene Bolotsky creates unusually bold pieces enriched with ethnic origins. A piece of bone, a bit of glass, or an ancient coin enhance and highlight her elegant designs.
