Presenting: Kelsey Simmen – The Nature of Metal

Macchiarini Creative Design is thrilled to present Kelsey Simmen- The Nature of Metal, an awe inspiring collection of wearable works of art in silver and found objects. Reflections and remnants from nature are encapsulated, mimicked and embellished in silver and fused gold. Inspirations, artifacts and materials are sourced directly from her collections from the woods, the beach, the city streets as well from her personal experiences with Type 1 Diabetes.

We invite you to join us for the opening reception,  Nov. 2, 2012 from 6-9PM, to discover the luscious leaves reticulated with organic textures, curious mushroom spore prints etched into silver, thoughtfully repurposed insulin syringes, pen vials, pump sites and more from this earthly and body centered collection of truly, everyday-wearable pieces of art.

Bio: Kelsey Simmen grew up on a farm in a small town in Northern California make-believing and walking around in nature, crafting mud pies and coffee out of plant life. She creates beautiful jewelry using silver and found, cast, fabricated or recycled objects gathered from nature and her experiences with Type 1 Diabetes. Kelsey applies several techniques to treat metal, most of which she learned from her studies at the Academy Of Art University, in San Francisco.
