Fine Art Jewelry made in Texas by Christian artist Nell Bednarz
Having grown up collecting stones and rocks in West Texas, I love the idea of creating with natural stones and gems in Sterling silver and gold-filled wire (which remains gold instead of wearing off). The organic designs in inorganic materials reminds me of my studies and travels connected with natural resources. Currently, I am fascinated by the Texas topaz rough stones that I sometimes find while shopping in Mason, Texas. I usually combine faceted or cabochon stones with the more organic-looking rough topaz. Please email me if you would like to see current designs. Posted images are sometimes available, but are usually held in Texas galleries, away from my home studio. I do not like to repeat myself when making an intricate design, and all of my work is very limited and unique. Hope to hear from you soon!
