KAREN EDGERLY, Metalsmithing, Handcrafted Jewelry
Artist and teacher, Karen Edgerly, combines her love for geology with silversmithing to create a striking line of jewelry, using patina-finished copper, recycled silver and gold, and precious and semi-precious stones.
Karen looks at metal as a beautifully malleable material—a medium that can be cast, formed, folded, and etched in a variety of ways. During the finishing process, she delights in exploring color and texture—from red-hued copper patinas to oxidized silver. She specializes in jewelry that is decorated with precious and semi-precious stones. The final piece has an organic classic feel.
