Alexis Pavlantos

American artist Alexis makes all of her jewelry by hand in Oakland, CA. She considers her process to be a transmogrification of her inexplicable depth of feeling into concrete material forms. She works with wax to give shape to her feeling-forms and solidifies them by casting them into metal. These forms resemble those found in nature. Her jewelry acts as an extension of the body, thus nature is not something we set out to find, but is something we are a part of.
