Modern Wooden Jewelry

Dorothea Pruhl Moths necklace elm wood
While I was in Germany last Spring I was allowed to use the library of my friend and  fellow metalsmith Leticia Domingues. On her shelf I found a terrific slim volume of Dorothea Pruhl's necklaces entitled Colliers. I've been enamored of her wooden necklaces ever since! 

Djurdjica Kesic Wooden Pins

I'd gladly welcome even an interior designed by Djurdjica Kesic. These modern pins give me the thoughts of hardworking hands carving away and bringing to mind wooden objects made in the 1950's and the studio furniture movement. They also look like they would be very fun to play with!

Beppe Kessler Seek and Find Broach

                 I love the use of color in this Beppe Kessler Broach!  

Gustav Reyes organic Coil bracelet

 This Gustave Reyes bracelet has great form! Though I'm not a huge bangle wearer I'd wear this in a heartbeat! I can't help but want to see furniture designed by this artist too!

Now that these artists have helped me see the amazing things you can make with wood I've got my collector's eyes focused on wood scraps everywhere I go!
Thanks for reading!
