Painting with Jewelry

3D Artistry by Jennifer Ritchie

Jennifer designs and hand makes every exclusive artwork in her collection. Each piece of vintage and contemporary jewelry is thoughtfully chosen, then carefully placed to create a story within these imaginative 3D artistries.

Much time and patience is involved in the making. Selecting the right pieces of jewelry for a specific theme, then creating an image from them, can span several weeks. Jennifer lets the pieces of jewelry tell her what they want to be.  No two designs are ever identical, as the jewelry she selects for a particular design is unique. 

The  jewelry used to create these collages are only the medium of expression and, just like brushstrokes on a painting, are not all perfect. Some of the individual pieces of jewelry may have slight imperfections which adds character to the work's earth friendly nature.
