About Emily Shaffer

My jewelry collections are designed and created using traditional metalsmithing techniques. These ancient techniques, use of precious metals, and personal skill set guide the wearable forms and structures created specifically for body adornment. My vision is to design and make contemporary jewelry with a coinciding brand that is clean, modern, and versatile. I seek and build balanced compositions of line and negative space. Limiting my color palette, and my obsession for smooth, clean surfaces, produces collections of functional pieces that support my vision. This focus also allows for a greater emphasis on the body and the structural, linear qualities of each piece. My overarching brand encompasses my life experiences, personality, unique manipulation of timeless aesthetics, and love for sharing this fine craft medium and resulting work with the public.
