Patricia Phillips defines her jewelry as small cultural art forms. “Each piece is generally hand wrought in gold and silver, starting from sheet and wire, with gemstones added for balance. The techniques incorporated are pulled from modern to ancient methods designed to please the eye through balance. They are small sculptural art forms which speak of a blend between delicate grace and strength as part of self-expression. No discourse or social commentary is intended, and realistic imagery is limited to not interfere with the relationship between the work and the audience.”
I was drawn to her work by the simplicity of shape and the limited number of bold focal elements.
