Roberta and David Williamson

Pulling from the vast archives of found objects, antique prints, pressed ferns and leaves, and various ephemera that line their studio walls, artists Roberta and David Williamson create jewelry that takes us back to a kinder, gentler aesthetic. The Williamsons have worked together since they were 18, and their relationship in the studio is the same as it is elsewhere. They simply love being together. After being a couple for so many years they have come to think very much alike. And the pieces they make pass smoothly back and forth between them through their many processes. Their work frequently references the garden, a metaphor for that wonderful, creative place in their minds where they conceive new ideas. Often exploring the concept of perfection in the imperfect, they include such details as a tiny chewed insect hole in a sterling silver leaf, which makes each piece come alive.
