Resume  of   Elizabeth Ann Rodgers            

 February 2011


Metal work is sterling silver with a 24K gold overlay fused by heat and pressure, an ancient Korean technique called Keum-bo.  Most of the work is hollow-formed, which gives a substantial appearance and light weight.  I find inspiration in the natural world and in particular, the human form and voice.  To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature is an endless combination and repetition of a very few laws. She hums the well-known air through innumerable variations.” 

 I have been working as a jeweler for the past 23 years, having previously been a glass artist.  My work has been featured in many shows and exhibitions.
