Kristin Ellis, Kristin Ellis Jewelry Artist (Jewelry) Online | Facebook | Instagram “Using traditional silversmithing, enameling, lost wax casting and gem cutting techniques, I make fine art jewelry out of sheet, wire, and scrap metals. Discarded objects often become the starting point of my designs. I use hammers and anvils to forge curving forms that I see in my mind's eye. At times, I cut away from the original object, using shears and saws or melt metal down to cast it into new forms. Design is an adventure for me: an improvisation, an experiment.

Qualities deemed undesirable in the forest products industry, such as knots, rot, and insect damage, provide the variation and character which make each piece unique.

“The Extravaganza of Strange is a celebration of all things weird and whimsical. I create completely original paintings, digital prints, and miniature resin sculptures of the characters in my head. My style is surreal, immersive, colorful, over-the-top, with a balance of both horror and whimsy. I’m often asked “what were you on when you painted this?" - both a compliment, and a depressing commentary on the assumption that creativity has to be fueled by chemicals. My inspiration comes from my background in animation, as well as toys, puppets, video games, comic books, and cos-play. I’m inspired by past creatives like Jim Henson, H.P. Lovecraft, and Dr. Seuss, as well as modern creatives like Tim Burton, Wayne White, Craola, Dulk, and Alex Pardee.

We print, cut, and apply the designs for our canvas bags in-house, by hand."
“I enjoy breaking an idea down to its simplest parts, then designing a unique or unorthodox way to make it anew. My work is 3D, but I sketch, draw, and design in 2D. Each piece is laser-cut flat, and I determine which axis that piece will land on. Using a laser cutter, as well as utilizing a monochromatic color scheme, gives each piece a solid industrial design aesthetic that pairs with my patterns and designs. Inspiration comes from everywhere, and my work continues to evolve as the design and construction methods adapt to what each piece requires. I design and construct boxes, bowls, puzzles, lamps, and wall art, among commissioned pieces and gallery entries. Some items are functional, others make a statement. But they're all SWORKS."
“Atlas & Aether is a handmade jewelry and home decor brand that blends innovative techniques with classical metalsmithing. I use 3D printing, electroforming, etching, and found objects to create mixed-media works of art that are immortalized in metal forever."
“Using traditional silversmithing, enameling, lost wax casting and gem cutting techniques, I make fine art jewelry out of sheet, wire, and scrap metals. Discarded objects often become the starting point of my designs. I use hammers and anvils to forge curving forms that I see in my mind's eye. At times, I cut away from the original object, using shears and saws or melt metal down to cast it into new forms. Design is an adventure for me: an improvisation, an experiment. Since I picked up my first hammer, I have followed the artistic journey of metalsmithing. And I've never looked back."
“Inspired by intricate line work and soft color, the Botanical Ceramics Collection utilizes traditional hand-building methods, such as slab construction and coil building.

There was this magic transformation that happened when I would drape an oversized rhinestone necklace on my chest and that has stayed with me all this time. My inspiration comes from mostly nature, shapes and forms. I enjoy playing with the use of positive and negative space through various forming and fusing techniques. I enjoy designing and creating jewelry that is understated, modern, and wearable. I strive to create pieces that are casual enough to wear during the day but modern and elegant to transition into the evening."

We do a number of other forms of art on other mediums, but this has always been our most popular. Primarily our designs are done with hand cut stencils, but there is a growing number that we screen print. At our events we set up display walls showing our newest designs, and fill up at table with storage crates filled with additional designs. Part of the fun is digging through crates how record stores used to display them, only now customers are crate digging for new wall art."
