J L Walsh Metalsmith

Jennifer and John Walsh live in Bozeman, MT. They fabricate comtemporary jewelry using ancient techniques and materials. A variety of surface treatments are used on the stones chosen for the jewelry to mimic decay, feeling that people are attracted to the look because it serves as a metaphor to the wear and tear of our daily modern lives. Incorporated into their jewelry are stones gathered from local rivers, hand-cut bones, shells, and bits of wood.
