Jewelry

My jewelry line is made up of several sculptural collections; each inspired by a different theme, concept, or material. Di Luce Design offers sustainable practices, affordable prices, and wearability.

jbennett_profileCreative Process:  The process starts with an idea or a desire to incorporate a material that has charmed me. Next comes the research where I delve into history/imagery/story, which is then followed by the gesticulation period (walking, meditating,  or sleeping until the eureka moment comes). When the image appears I draw and make models until I am satisfied. I fabricate all the pieces in my line by hand at my studio in the International District. My tools are minimal–torch, files, hammers and a drill.  I spend a lot of time on the finishing process–determining how much to patina a piece by bathing it in a liver of sulphur bath and playing with the light and dark of it prior to sealing it. I then test it out by wearing it, both for durability and for feedback.

How my art fits into Art Under $100′s vision: This year I would like to create a separate body of work for Art Under $100. I am working on a found in WA/Made in WA concept which will incorporate stones from the North Cascades that have been found and cut by local rockhound/stone cutter.
