Marisa Martinez 2012

Marisa Martinez works with a wide variety of materials to create collages of personal adornment. She hand fabricates and forges her silver bracelets, pendants, and rings. To create beads from Moretti glass, she uses a oxygen-propane torch followed by a kiln to anneal and fuse the glass. She believes, as her ancestors did, that many stones have healing and protective qualities. Designing unique pieces of jewelry allows her to combine her love for color, cultural history, and art making.
