Elyse Bogart


As a former painter, I carry into my jewelry-making all the things I learned and loved about painting and drawing, and this adds tremendously to my ability to translate what I see into wearable works of jewelry. Through the years I have been involved in creating a body of work that reflects that interest, and I have always kept that love of line and color at the forefront of my work regardless of all the variations in theme that may occur. No matter what other elements and ideas might find their way into my jewelry, I keep coming back to my foundation in drawing and painting for inspiration.
