Judith Altruda
Tokeland, WA. USA
Images and work details at:

My jewelry is hand fabricated using a variety of metal smithing
processes. Everything is made in my studio in Tokeland Washington,
on the Willapa Bay. Most pieces are one of a kind. Metals such as
shibuichi, copper, silver and gold are often used and mixed within
the same piece. To get the textures that evoke what I see on the
beach, I often etch the metal in acid and proceed from there. I love
the classic form of ancient jewelry. Recently I have been studying
and using ancient metal working techniques, including the use of
rocks as tools to form metal. It is much slower going, but to me,
best serves the purpose.

Passion is contagious! Show us your passion, Show us your work!
