Located in Alexandria, Virginia, Estelle has been handcrafting jewelry for 30 years. Her jewelry designs are influenced by both the visual and the tactile.
Whether it's the leaves on trees, the roughness of tree bark, or the intricacies of Japanese textile design, she distills these images into her jewelry with an elegant simplicity.
Estelle’s work is textural being pleasing to the eye and the hand at the same time, and currently involves several surface techniques. The gold painted work involves melting 14k wire onto the surface of the sterling silver in a painterly fashion and then using an iridescent patina. In another technique, she creates unique textures utilizing original photographs she has taken in our National Parks. She etches the design into a texture plate and then roller prints or embosses the design onto the metal. Each piece of jewelry in the Yellowstone and Bryce series is embellished with 24k gold keum boo accents and then oxidized to fully develop the contrasts between the blackened metal and the gold.
