Suzanne Schwartz

Suzanne Schwartz, Sew Weave Necklace, oxidized argentium silver stitched with fine silver wire.

Suzanne Schwartz first discovered the freedom that art could bring when her grandmother taught her to sew and knit. Textiles inspired her even as a child: with their variety of patterns and textures, they opened her eyes to art’s boundless possibilities. As an adult, her creative medium moved from textiles to metals, but the stitches came with her, as seen in her Interwoven Collections. She finds texture and form in nature all around her: the surface of a leaf, the pattern of lichen on a branch, the curve where hills meet, the shadows of water over rocks. These lines and fluid shapes become part of her jewelry.

Julie Slattery

Julie Slattery, Bird Skull (mini), bronze.

Julie Slattery‘s wearable sculptures explore emotional responses of attachment and loss. The objects she creates reflect sensations of unease, oddity, and a recognition of something that was or could have been. Slattery is an Albuquerque-based artist who works at the Los Ranchos Fine Art Foundry. Through the process of casting, she creates artwork that necessitates the destruction of an original object. This is often representative of crucial moments or pivotal experiences in her life.

Kat Cole

Kat Cole- Enamel on Steel Jewelry- Form and Concept Gallery- Santa Fe New Mexico
Kat Cole, Boundary Line Look Necklace, steel, enamel.

Kat Cole finds meaning through the observance and intimate awareness of the places she inhabits. With each geographic change, she has become more attuned to the natural and man-made attributes that make a location unique.  She looks to the built environment of the city where she lives for the formal qualities of her work: materials, forms, colors and surface qualities. The steel and concrete structures that surround us are evidence of human inhabitants, past and present. Cole distills her experiences of these monumental structures into the intimate scale of jewelry. They are completed when worn on the landscape of the body.
