Hello, I'm Cathy Enright, the one-woman show behind StoneBlossoms Jewelry. I create my jewelry my home studio in California's Eastern Sierra.
My jewelry is heavily influenced and inspired by my deep appreciation for the colors, shapes and textures found in nature. Just out my front door, I am struck by the contrasting colors of nature - the caramel brown jagged rocks against the blue sky; the brilliant golden yellow and orange of the aspen leaves against the dark green of the Jeffrey Pines.
I use traditional metalsmithing techniques to create nature-inspired jewelry featuring precious metals and semi-precious gemstones. Each piece in the StoneBlossoms Jewelry line is hand forged, sawed, pierced, formed and soldered individually.
Making art jewelry with my saw and a freshly milled piece of metal is one of my favorite ways to spend a day. I am particularly fond of piercing and sawing shapes in metal to depict a scene from the Eastern Sierra.
My most popular series, The Alpine Collection, is a series of Alpine Scenes, sawn, layered and soldered in sterling silver and mixed metals to honor our beautiful Alpine Scenery.
I believe that art in its many forms tells a story; a story told through the lens of the artist, and read through the filter of the audience.
Many of my jewelry pieces tell the story of a life lived in and a love of our natural world, with an emphasis on the mountains. My audience relates to these pieces in their experience visiting or living and loving nature.
