A Colorful Celebration

Featuring an enameled bar of copper, this lustrous necklace is a celebration of color and materials. Jewelry artist Karen Smith starts with a hand-formed bar of solid copper, and then applies enamel in a centuries-old process of fusing colored glass to metal. The result is a subtle interplay of two colors (blue and green or gold and copper) in a surface that's as durable as it is beautiful. The interplay of modern forms and handcrafted appeal makes this an attractively versatile addition to your collection. Handmade in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Made in North Carolina

I have been in the graphic design field for over 20 years. Graphic design is very 2 dimensional and I wanted to challenge myself by creating 3 dimensional work. With my strong design skills and eye for color, creating jewelry seemed to be the perfect choice and it was a natural transition. I started making pieces for myself and had an overwhelming response! I took metalsmithing classes at a local community college to hone my craft. And so began Karen Smith Metalwear.

Nature, architecture and different cultures inspire my design concepts. Each piece is transformed, using different techniques, into one of a kind works of art. They're made of silver, brass and copper metals. Some of the surfaces are textured or embellished with enamels - glass fused to metal at a high temperature. The Karen Smith Metalwear collection is bold pieces of wearable art worn by women who aren't afraid of expressing themselves.
