Stripe Collar, 2021
Sterling and argentium silver

Artist Statement:
My focus is to create jewelry that is clean, modern, and versatile. It’s made to be functional and to
complement the body. Using silver, I seek and build balanced compositions of line and negative
space. Limiting my color palette, and my obsession for smooth, clean surfaces, requires me to hone
in on basic metalsmithing skills. This focus allows for a greater emphasis on the body and the
structural, linear qualities of each piece.

Artist Bio:
Originally from Pennsylvania, Emily received a B.F.A in Crafts concentrating in fine metals, and B.S.
in Art Education from Kutztown University. She moved to Maine in 2014 for a 1-year internship with
an active studio jeweler. Since then, she has relocated her studio to Lincolnville, ME where she
designs and makes contemporary jewelry in her metalsmithing studio. You can find her work online,
in juried craft shows and galleries around the country.
