hanuman Tidal Ware Jewelry
Oakland, California. USA
Tidal Ware Jewelry by Sharla Pidd showcases bold pieces that transform the mysticism of the desert with the confident, statement-making aesthetic of the urbanite. Tidal Ware offers unique one-of-a-kind jewelry, custom orders, and the occasional metal sculpture. The name Tidal Ware pays homage to the artist’s lifelong recurring dreams of tidal waves.
Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Sharla Pidd is a rock collector turned silversmith. She started making jewelry in 2008, selling her creations as a street vendor in San Francisco. Sharla received her education in jewelry design and fabrication from the Sharon Art Studio, The Revere Academy, and through apprenticeships with Sam Patania in Tucson, AZ and Taber Studios in Berkeley, CA. Today, Sharla works out of her studio at The Compound Gallery in Oakland, California. Her line of jewelry is inspired by design but ultimately she is motivated by improving her craft and experimenting with different metals and techniques.
