[New Orchid Gallery] Iris Algom

Iris Algom

As an art jeweler I work like a sculptor. I make “sculptures to
wear”. By wearing a sculpture, letting it touch your skin or
attaching it to your clothes, you create a more intimate and
personal relationship to the object. In the current collection I use
reflections of human forms and landscapes. Starting from a
2-dimensional sheet of metal or wax I transform feelings and
thoughts in to 3-dimensional forms. During the process I constantly
add and remove elements to create multiple layers of light and dark.
Using 24k gold, oxidized silver, white silver, metal on metal, I
strive to present images of strength and sensitivity. Brooches,
rings, cuff-links, key chains and pendants to nourish your soul.
