Elaine Pataky Wire Sculpted & GemstoneJewelry
Since the beginning of their time, humans have expressed themselves with art and spirituality. I express my spiritual and aesthetic needs in the creation of jewelry. I'm profoundly affected by the joyous responses of people to my art.I witnessed that my jewelry became a medium for the fulfillment of their needs to adorn their bodies with beauty, thereby enriching the human experience. A unique and spiritual bonding occurs between us. As a wire sculptor I employ 5000 yr. old techniques first seen in Mesopotamia. I use cold-connection wire techniques, no solder or glue. Semi-precious materials comprise the other elements. These methods are very challenging on both a craftsman and artistic level. I constantly strive to push boundaries and raise the levels of my artistic expression and crafting abilities.
