Featured Designer: New Works by Jim Charles until March 31 January 20 2013

We are so excited to have the work of Jim Charles as our first featured designer at www.metanajewelry.com. His current body of work is inspired by photographs he took of a previous collection of jewelry where silver wire was cut, melted, hammered, drilled and formed into intricate pieces of jewelry. These new designs made from laser-cut acrylic imagine where lines, loops and connections work together to form a three-dimensional blueprint of the space and shadows extracted from each image.

Jim Charles is a Pennsylvania born artist currently living and working in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  He received a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2002.  His work is represented by Heidi Lowe Gallery in Rehoboth, Delaware.
