I was checking out the new work in the Polymer and Silver Flickr pool, and on each page it was Liz Hall’s jewelry and belt buckles and caught my eye.
Here’s more about her in her own words:
About the Artist
Liz Hall graduated for Maryland Institute of Art in 1985 where she majored in crafts with Jewelry/metal being her main focus. Her Jewelry design won her scholarships and awards through out college. After college Liz and her husband, Jeff Hall moved to Loudon Co. Virginia and started renovating what is now Silverwood Farm and Studio. Silverwood combines Jeff Halls Sculpture studio, Liz’s Jewelry and graphics business and a pinto sporthorse breeding farm.
My work combines precious metals, stones, plastics, polymers, glass or whatever object catches my eye. My designs are contemporary combining both organic and geometric forms. The majority of my pieces are pendants, necklaces and earrings, though I do occasionally make other items. My main focus in the past was fabricating metals to create my designs. In 2004 I discovered a new medium called PMC (Precious Metal Clay), which is clay like material composed of fine silver. Fine Silver is the highest quality silver, essentially 999% pure silver, as compared to the 925% silver of sterling silver. I enjoy exploring this new medium and combining it with other materials. I strive to always improve on my designs and techniques and to make jewelry that is creative, unusual, elegant and fun to wear.
