BEATE DEGEN EarthWorth Jewels
My work is the ancient art of inlaid stone on sterling silver sheet, which was used in cultures like Egypt and Latin America. I hand-build each centerpiece and finish it with beading and wire working using natural materials from gems, shells, bamboo, and sterling beads to porcupine quills. Everything is exclusively designed and handmade by me, making every piece a part of my life’s journey. My hope is that this work will enrich your daily life with beauty and strength.
