EBSQ Spotlight on Artist Made Jewelry: Christina M. Givens

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.

Triskelion - Christina M. Givens
When I was a kid I always took everything apart. From the TV’s to furniture, nothing was safe! My parents always found it funny, that’s only because I would put it back together again. I naturally gravitated to watches and taking them apart.
When I first discovered the steampunk movement, I was dazzled! All the gears and cogs, metal, clock, aviation, I loved every bit of it! I began making pendants with tons of trial and error. But once I got the hang of it each piece had a purpose or a reason for it.
I’ve always felt that it was the sentiment and the reason behind a piece of jewelry that made it special, even if it was aesthetically pleasing. So this is what I try to create with every piece I touch. – Christina M. Givens

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

Terah Lyn Ware

Your Butterfly Necklace - Terah Lyn Ware

My interest in women’s history and adornment has led me to create the timeless jewelry collection, “An Era’s Ambiance”.  In my studies of historical attire, jewelry was found to be very symbolic in women’s lives by representing stature, the mourning a loved one or simply adorning one’s soul.  I use heirlooms from the past to adorn the souls of today.  The antiquity and history of each heirloom that I handpick transcends beauty from a time in one’s past…”An Era’s Ambiance”.

My handmade jewelry would be described as “upcycled” works of art, altered creations, and “Neo Victorian” Classics.  I create my jewelry from heart and soul to create “gifts” for those that relate to the past. – Terah Lyn Ware

Terah resides in Berkeley Springs, WV with her husband and son.  She is an art teacher for Morgan County, WV.

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.

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
