About Lauren Markley
My jewelry, at once both small-scale sculpture as well as ornament for the body, is a personal interpretation of my surroundings and observations. I primarily use sterling silver, wood, and enamel. My work is inspired by architecture, structures, building materials, and schematics. I explore these themes through the use of geometric forms, repeated patterns, and negative space, as well as with surface treatments such as painting, burning, etching, and stitching.
