Nancy Marland writes..."I create contemporary jewelry for people who enjoy unique, creative self expression. My work is handmade by me limited editions and one-of-a-kinds  in a spirit of spontaneity with a focus on abstraction, color and organic forms. 

My creative impulses are influenced by the work of midcentury modernists, pop art, and the abstraction of patterns and shapes in nature and everyday things.

I received a BFA from the Art Institute of Boston with a concentration in painting and sculpture. I have come to jewelry design later in life after having spent 30 years as a self-employed graphic designer.

The years of fine art and graphic design experience have led to the passion I now feel creating handmade, wearable art for people who enjoy self expression with a unique and playful style. I
begin my design process with drawings to create patterns and initial forms.

Using a variety of materials, methods, techniques and processes, I create prototypes of my designs. I then cast these pieces to which I often add more shape, texture, additional silver elements, oxidation, and polymer clay."
