EBSQ Spotlight on Artist Made Jewelry: Aimee Koester

This month’s featured gallery is Artist Made Jewelry. Handcrafted jewelry is not only an expression of the artist who created it but of the one who wears it.  Whether created in silver or gold; plain or sparkling with gems and stones, artist made jewelry is a coming together of personalities that is unique. Throughout the remainder of March, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of EBSQ’s Jewelry artists.

Ties That Bind Copper Cuff - Aimee Koester

I don’t know about you, but I’m a different person everyday. Jewelry gives me the opportunity to showcase the facets of my personality. Even when I’m creating I’m able to use that to my advantage. The artist sculpts in metal, the rebel works in copper, the princess with stones, and the child lives in fantasy. And the best part…. There’s nothing beyond the scope of jewelry. – Aimee Koester

Silver Flower And Fox Tail Chain Bracelet - Sholeh Mesbah

“Since early 2006, I have created bold and unique pieces of wearable art. My distinctive work features precious materials and complex techniques. From fine art to the natural world, the jewelry collection draws on my international background and diverse interests. For the discriminating buyer, my Collections offer original pieces for all occasions. In addition to making jewelry, I am a stained glass and a water color artist and above all I am a gardener. My inspirations come from everything and everywhere around me. I am always seeking multiple venues to express my creative side. Creating jewelry allows me to express myself in many ways; I can be serious, funky, colorful, contemporary, classic or just playful.” – Sholeh Mesbah

EBSQ Spotlight on Artist Made Jewelry: Robin Cruz McGee

Oyster Heart Pendant - Robin Cruz McGee

I move metal. I take inorganic, flat material and transform it. I hammer, stretch, shape, manipulate and model until that horizontal plane breathes into life. Although I have pursued many series, using every metal imaginable, my innate proclivity seems to be the organic form.  My tools become extensions of me when I am creating a new form and I am thoroughly consumed in the process of repousse, right through to the application of the final patina and findings. When I make a piece of jewelry, it is wearable sculpture. These are statement pieces, and usually not for the faint of heart. – Robin Cruz McGee
