Hurricane Ridge 5.2019 - Lisa Gent

Lisa Gent Handcrafted Jewelry

For 30 years now I have made my home in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The natural beauty that surrounds me is inspiration not only to my work but my being as well. I love form and texture which play an integral role in my work. The full green leaves of the trees against a vivid blue summer sky or the setting winter sun, with its’ violets and blues against the bare black winter branches. Maybe the crashing waves and the smell of the ocean, a caterpillars amazing stripes or the wonder of a new spring day. Using traditional metalsmithing techniques in addition to innovative hand forming and forging methods I cut, shape, solder, and finish all my pieces by hand in my studio. Fine silver and 18k gold are my metals of choice while also working in sterling and all karat golds. Many pieces feature faceted gem stones or pearls. I strive to create pieces that are simple yet intriguing to look at and that will stand the test of time. People have been wearing jewelry since the beginning of time. Jewelry can offer us distinction and help to create a sense of self. The handcrafted aspect of jewelry breathes life and character into any piece of work. Seeing the marks a jeweler leaves behind reminds us that someone took the time, they had intentions when the piece was being created. Taking my que from nature I strive to create work that is organic and beckons to be worn. Jewelry that is timeless while being current.
