HAND WOVEN 14K GOLD FILLED & STERLING SILVER JEWELRY
Angela Lensch, owner and resident jewelry artist, grew up on a lovely farm just outside Decorah, Iowa. She earned her BFA in Sculpture and Furniture from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and has focused those skills into her current work, creating sculpted jewelry in gold and silver.
Using a specialized technique Angela takes precious metals and weaves them together with gemstones, pearls, crystal, wood, bone, shell and/or fair trade sari wrapped beads, creating unique matrices of wearable art. Every piece is one-of-a-kind and hand made. Each woven necklaces contains a distinct style, collection of color and texture, as well as alchemical properties.
Every woven necklace is adjustable from 16-19in or 18-21in. Many have an average of 60ft of gold or silver woven into them; some variations have a lighter weave (30-40ft of gold or silver) and other are more full with a longer area of weaving (100-120ft of gold or silver).
“I love making the woven gemstone necklaces because each one is so unique and special… like a small potion… a collection of colors and alchemy.
I have learned as a jewelry artist that my work is never completely done until it finds the right woman to rest upon – then it is complete. To experience that moment is the most exciting part of being a jewelry artist.”
