Nature and contrasting combinations are the things that feed my imagination.
I have been a metalsmithing artist creating wearable art since 1983.
The passion began as an avocation while living in New York City, a city of striking contrasts. As I was drawn to create using nature and metal as a medium, I discovered it to be a natural gift and have studied various metalsmithing techniques over the course of my career.
The creative process involves taking the raw materials of precious metal sheet and wire and semi-precious stones and creating works that reflect contrast; soft embracing hard, finished and polished with the raw and uncut – always in balance in the final piece.
The beauty of each natural part speaks to how it will come into being.
I hope that you enjoy each of my one-of-a-kind works and will venture to see more in upcoming shows and by appointment. And please visit the following site(s) if you would like make a purchase: www.nyyalarkjewelrydesigns.com and www.nyyalarkjewelrydesigns-gallery.com
