A Commitment to Craft & Design

About the Artist

A jeweler + metalsmith + knitter + overall maker, and 2016 graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston where she studied and received her BFA in Jewelry + Metalsmithing.  

Immediately she began attending tradeshows as an emerging artist making new lines of work. This journey came to a pause after being offered the opportunity to work for Fuller Craft Museum. 

She is excited to begin a new journey as the Museum Shop Manager. She is privileged to be able to meet and represent many artists such as herself.

Adriana continues with her work in her home studio, with each piece being one of a kind.

Design+FunctioN

The Process

My work is a contemporary twist of organic and geometric forms and textures that have an abstract graphic quality.  My approach on design carries a heavy influence from the Scandinavian Modernist movement. This, in conjunction with vintage knot books and diagrams, are integral to my practice. When creating new work I gravitate towards the concept of kinetics and how objects move in space.

Designed and Handmade In House

 

 

All of my work is constructed using traditional metalsmithing fabrication techniques such as soldering, forging, forming, and piercing. Sterling silver is my conscious choice of metal. Some pieces are set with semi-precious gemstones such as garnet, labradorite, moonstone, tourmalated quartz, australian opal, iolite, etc.
