This month at Venue come meet the newest studio tenant - jeweler Sophie Gardner. Sophie Gardner’s jewelry creates an aesthetic bridge between ancient and modern worlds.
She incorporates the intricate details of Spain's Moorish architecture, tiles, arabesques, and portals; the repetitive beauty of East Indian textiles; and the strength and simplicity of Japanese illustration and stencil design. Most recently she has been working with Fossilized Wooly Mammoth ivory and ancient scrimshaw techniques, applying an innovative and a modern approach to prehistoric material.
