It's Elemental, my dear Watson

Elements by Dawn
Element - refers to the shape, form, mass, line, texture, pattern, light, and color of a design.

One of my favorite jewelry artists on Etsy is Dawn Brandt from Kenosha, Wisconsin and her shop, Elements by Dawn. Dawn is particularly drawn to creating pattern and texture in her pieces. Through pattern and texture, her designs take on movement, visual and tactile interest. Through the use of color and form, she communicates emotion and energy. Dawn's pieces range from simplistic shapes and lines, evoking a sense of calm; to heavily textured with bold colors and lines, suggesting passion.

Her obsession with circles, spheres, disks, and symmetry is expressed throughout her designs.

Dawn is constantly learning new techniques, as well as perfecting traditional methods of metalworking and design.

Additionally, she is a full-time student, wife, and mother of two boys. She enjoys listening to music of all types, especially industrial, techno, a little ska, and classical. Dawn is a self-diagnosed coffee and cheese addict.

She blogs here - check it out!
