Anita DiPietro Designs
I am a jewelry artist/metalsmith, specializing in studio-created mixed-metal artisan jewelry and custom jewelry design. My greatest inspirations include nature and ancient civilizations. Using primarily silver, copper, bronze, unusual gemstones and fossils, my jewelry reflects the deep appreciation I have for the beauty and “art” that occurs in nature.
Currently, my focus is on texture and movement in my designs, though form and balance are also essential. I use conventional and non-conventional techniques and tools in my studio. Each piece is carefully designed and constructed by hand in my studio, from raw materials such as flat sheets of metal and wire.
I thoroughly enjoy the process of transforming raw materials into timeless designs with a deeper meaning, to adorn the body, as well as the spirit.
