Linda Kaye-Moses - Jewelry Gallery


#1

Studio Jeweler Linda Kaye-Moses, an award-winning artist whose work is shown at juried events and selected galleries, teaches at craft schools nationally and internationally and is the author of “Pure Silver Metal Clay Beads”. Her jewels concern themselves with function, wearability, and also with the implicit/explicit narrative capacity of adornment, and, often with enclosure as sculptural form. Those individual jewels that are combined with supporting enclosures are an extension of my intention to build fully realized objects by constructing jewels within environments or protective dwellings, “Nesting Cases”.

Her pieces explore the fusion of multiple elements with the stories her objects relate; each object speaking as a sculptural ‘encyclopedia’ of connected and coherent images, symbols, and concepts.
