Twisted Jewelry Series was based on branches, twigs, and other natural materials birds intertwine and weave to create their nests. This jewelry collection is related to Kaminer’s Nest Series, but does not interpret the nest form. In this silver jewelry series, she explores the action of twisting silver wire together like a bird would do with branches and twigs. The tension put into the silver from the intertwining and wrapping techniques makes it very strong. Therefore, the jewelry pieces are very durable and sturdy, even though they appear delicate.
These jewelry designs are available for purchase exclusively through the Gibbes Museum of Art Store, located in historic downtown Charleston, SC. Contact them for details at www.gibbesmuseum.org
