Chelsea E. Bird is a jeweler and textile artist working out of her independent studio in Pawtucket, RI. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2006 with a double BFA in Artisanry, focusing both on Jewelry/Metals, and Textile Design/Fiber Arts.
Chelsea’s jewelry designs are inspired by forms in nature and influenced by her background in pattern design. Her love of color and contrasting textures features predominately in her work. Her pieces are primarily Sterling silver, which is formed and textured using chasing and repousse, dapping, and hydraulic press forming. Color is added to her work using glass enamel and silk fabric set into the silver. Her delicate and modern designs are light and pleasing to wear. The small splashes of color and sparkle, compliment anything from casual chic to evening wear.
