Contemporary Jewelry Design by Andrea Williams: Articulated Brooch: Articulated pods form this substantial and versatile brooch. Multiple pin stems allow this piece to be worn in a variety of ways- as a brooch, draped dramatically over the shoulder, or as a mock necklace. Nature’s alchemy; the iridescent gold silk is a natural sustainably harvested product of an unusual Indonesian moth. Wild silk cocoons, oxidized silver, lab grown white sapphires.
Starry Night Brooch/Pendant: This pendant can also be worn as a brooch. The inspiration for this body of work was born out of my earliest memories of the night sky. I collect these stones on a beach close to my childhood home in Maine. I inlay the stones with reclaimed precious metals and lab grown white sapphires to create a wearable vision of a clear night sky.
