I am fortunate to be a metalrts student living in San Diego, California, where I spend much of my time outdoors. I particularly love our beaches and the ocean, where I can immerse all my senses in the elemental energies I find there. In many of my pieces, I interpret natural forms and forces from the oceanside, seeking to use form, shape, texture and motion to translate sensory details into tangible art. An example is my “sea foam,” in which I use a method of weaving with wire and chain to create a structure that conveys tropical waves breaking on the shore. All my life, I have felt inspired to create art, and a few years ago, I became attracted to the making of jewelry. The media used in jewelry (not limited to metal) and the requirements they impose on the creative process intrigue and challenge me, and inspire me to express my sensory impressions as artistic expressions. One of my greatest satisfactions is the experience of seeing others wearing my art as they, too, explore the elements in a natural environment.; http://www.aaromwilloughby.com
