debra-adelsonDebra Adelson describes herself as an object maker. In school she “made more tableware than jewelry, even though I was in the jewelry program. I am a natural object maker, and tend to think of designs for objects that function.” The continued pressure from customers to make jewelry moved her from ‘flatware’ to ‘fun wear’. In addition to art shows and studio work, Debra found time to write a book for Lark…The Art Of Jewelry Plastic & Resin.

The clear Cara Croninger ring jumped out of the black and white photo. A google image search commenced and then a  WOW!!! “When Cara Croninger started casting and carving resin pendants and earrrings in the early 1970s, she was a pioneer. Working from the roof of her loft building in New York’s Tribeca (then a grungy industrial neighborhood), she created one-of-a-kind pieces that quickly became collectors’ items. From her current studio in Garnerville, New York, she continues to make stunning jewelry and bowls.”

Faryn Davis’s layered resin jewelry has the feel of a lazy summer afternoon or a misty fall morning. She is  “a “collector of small powerful things” in her mixed media art which often incorporates found organic elements into illuminated shrine-like forms, resin paintings, and in her line of resin jewelry.  Her recent works combine thick, poured layers of resin with misty painted scenes populated by birds, bears, foxes and other creatures in dreamlike settings, and real embedded objects such as grass, eggs, bones, and plants. They are inspired by the beauty and mystery of the natural world and are infused with tension, rest, beauty, and longing.”

Tracy Page Smith creates the shapes for her jewelry and then allows the colors for those shapes to speak to her. “I have epiphanies when I design, often starting with simplified shapes and then allowing the colors for those shapes to speak to me instead of me delegating them. I find that to create the visual impact I want each piece to have ultimately, whether it’s a simple piece or an ensemble, requires my “listening to” as well as “looking at” color. Though I prefer the lackluster of a sanded finish, I do like to create the illusion of texture by suspending organic particulates such as sand, spices, dried leaves, almost anything that crumbles and stays on the surface, within the pigmented resin.”

Nicole & Mike Collins create jewelry that combines unconventional materials…resin, sari fabric and metal. “Texture contrasted with smooth surface, and high polished metal against dark patinas create visual opposition.”

I was on the hunt for some great Diane Von Furstenburg bangles when I stumbled across these bangles from Mirabelle. The Von Furstenburg’s will have to wait for another day.
