Laura Bouton - Caged
Artist: Laura Bouton, Massachusetts
Materials: sterling silver, Herkimer diamond
Dimensions: Total approximate height 1.5 inches, band width 0.75, tapers down to 0.25 inches
Artist Statement: Every time I create a new jewelry piece it is more about challenging myself and learning a new fabrication skill. Rarely, there is a deep meaning behind the design. However, looking at my finished cage ring I realized this is probably how we all have felt at some point in these past pandemic years.
Artist Bio: I am a self-taught silversmith. I started making jewelry about 13 years ago while I lived in Italy. Now I live in Cape Cod where I continue my passion of creating unique art jewelry.
Rings from this collection will ship or be available for pick up after the competition concludes on April 29.
