About The Artist

Audrey Peck • Tulsa, OK

I am a jewelry artist living and working in Oklahoma. My work is inspired by my surroundings and my relationship with the beauty and complexity of nature. I gravitate toward landscape imagery and simple forms that express an appreciation of the natural world. Along with other found materials, wood solidifies that connection for me and the wearer. Wood facilitates the introduction of color and texture along with traditional metalsmithing techniques to make contemporary, wearable jewelry pieces.

Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

I hand fabricate my jewelry myself in a home studio. The wood elements start with cutting small wood pieces and painstakingly reassembling them with a pair of tweezers to a base. All pieces are hand cut, carved and painted with natural milk paint. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques of sawing, soldering and cold connections to capture the wood constructions in metal, like a stone.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

What I have always loved about jewelry making is the problem-solving aspect. It is a forever changing and growing creative process that provides constant challenges. Working with wood is exciting to me because there are endless possibilities and opportunities to find new shapes and forms.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

The fragility yet sturdiness of the material. Wood is such a lightweight material that makes for jewelry that is comfortable and easy to wear.
