My name is Kaelin Cordis
I’m an Artist- and my media is Art Jewelry.
Tiny Sculptures that you can wear.
Every piece I create is inspired by the world around us, all the many details that make up the beauty that surrounds us. From the dancing of flames that represents the flicker of hope in times of despair, or the cheerful ripple of waters that flow over every obstacle, I find beauty in the smallest moments.
Each piece is a tiny sculpture representing the single moments that make life precious, if only we notice and cherish them.
I forge wearable artworks as jewelry for the women who collect experiences, and seek out alluring beauty.
Common Questions about Art Jewelry
What is Art Jewelry?
In practice, this also tends to mean that the artist does not use traditional goldsmithing techniques like pave settings, or millgrain, such as you might find on main stream wedding rings.
Instead, the artist pushes the envelope of design, and embraces materials that are not traditionally though of as “precious”.
What is Designer Art Jewelry?
However, the implication is that the art jewelry is either a one of a kind work, or of limited edition, not created en masse.
What is Fine Art Jewerly?
Ethical sourcing- what does that mean?
In my work I use hand forged Argentium silver, fairmined and recycled 22k and 24k golds to accent and frame responsibly sourced designer Cabochons and gemstones. This is extremely important to me, because it is my firmly held belief our responsibility as humans is to leave the world better than we found it.
Why is this important? Because historical mining practices were damaging both to the environment and the miners. There are still severe issues with modern day processes, and by choosing my materials, I am attempting to support and protect our world and our fellow humans.
