About the Artist:

"After years of adapting jewelry to the hypoallergenic materials I needed, I started making my own. I let my loves of Nature, learning, and the process of experimentation and making guide me down the exploratory path of “What if?” as I began creating and selling wearable art that is so much more than merely “hypoallergenic jewelry.” Instead, I create pieces that are elegant for a look that transcends time by pulling influences from Mother Nature, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco while having a minimalist and modern feel. 
For as long as I can remember I’ve made jewelry and accessories of some sort, so for me creating is a timeless part of who I am.  From knotted bracelets to fancy beadwork and lace, some of my earliest memories of hanging out with my textile--artist mother include figuring out how to follow a pattern – or make up my own! 
I came to work with porcelain, pearls, and hypoallergenic (and precious) metals as part of a still-winding journey:  I constantly had to adapt purchased jewelry because of my metal sensitivities.  I created in a ceramics studio and enjoyed making small things more than large pottery.  I had a strand of craft store pearls, and wondered whether I could “frame them” with porcelain and let them each become wearable pieces of art.  This gave me a unique combination of materials with an elegant, simple, and timeless aesthetic that has improved over time with both my skill and the quality of my materials." -Manda Wylde
