Cival is a collection of limited edition and one-of a kind jewelry, designed and handcrafted locally in Milwaukee, WI. Mineral specimens and tribal elements are the focal point of this intricate collection. Each piece is made impressionistically through expirmentation with the materials as the base of the design process. My designs are simple, carefully selected abstract assemblages. I take great effort to achieve the correct aesthetic and balance combining stones with vintage finds, specialty glass and sparse crystal or tribal elements. I work as much as i can with found objects and recycled vintage parts. By day I am an awesome adventure mom by night I crawl into my home studio/cave to create with my my ever expanding jewelry collection.
I am influenced by strong patterns found in textile and vintage design. Geometrical tribal weaving and Victorian elements and the materials themselves.
Its all about creativity, engineering and exposure
