Elizabeth’s artistic approach is through math and nature. She loves to break down the raw beauty of nature into simple elements. Elizabeth uses techniques such as forging, forming, replicating, growing and simplifying to create intricate designs. Her pieces use simple lines, primary shapes and structures in which the growth of these forms create original and unique pieces of wearable art. Her work is edgy, classic and timeless.
