My work has a fragile, ethereal quality that belies its inherent strength. The intricately soldered pieces of forged and formed 18 karat gold and silver require countless solder points.
The open structure allows people to glimpse inside to space usually unseen, to the play of shadows and layers revealed. I endeavor to capture, in each of my organic, sculptural pieces, certain elusive and contradicting qualities; rawness with opulence, fragility with strength.
It is the ability to create miniature sculpture in the form of functional art that most intrigues Beverly. Since 2008, Beverly’s finely soldered art jewelry pieces have been shown at leading craft shows and galleries across the country. Her work has been seen at SOFA and published in various national and international art magazines and books, including 500 Silver Jewelry Pieces published by Lark Books and Nicholas Estrada’s, New Earrings.
