With equal parts zen and equal parts rock n roll, Jivita Harris-Casey has been creating jewelry for over ten years. Formally trained as a fine art jeweler and black smith, she has defined her aesthetic in silver, gold and a characterizing patina. While the themes in her work stem from her love and relationship with nature, her jewelry goes beyond literal translation of it and explores the dynamic energy of the world around us.All of the designs are originally hand fabricated using traditional metal smithing techniques. Often the makers mark is left as file or hammer marks. These pieces are then molded and locally cast using recycled and reclaimed silver. Each piece is hand finished in the studio and some are embellished with natural gemstones.
