Shirley Weiss

San Rafael, CA

I came to my love of metal and texture after having spent my professional life as a teacher. My transition from the classroom to the jeweler’s bench has been all consuming and incredibly satisfying. My work is concerned with texture and translation. Working sterling silver and gold, I fuse, etch, and incorporate the processes of lost wax, repousse and chasing to translate textures from our natural environment into art.
