Janice T. Filipski – Artist Statement
I love transforming pearls, semi-precious stones & metal into little movable earrings sculptures & other body art. Most of my jewelry is crafted with 18 to 22-gauge solid sterling silver or copper findings & wire. My pearl designs have an upbeat, modern appeal yet are still sophisticated & will endure over time. I'm not a production jeweler. Loving the textures & forms of nature I transfer these patterns onto my etched bracelets & cuffs. I try to keep my designs fresh & my creative edge evolving. At times I may work in other materials too: paint, wood, fiber & clay.
I love the creative process & selling my work is an exciting way to share my artistic spirit with others. It is easy for me to move into the creative flow, where time seems to standstill. I call my home studio "Plank House. " It is where my strong creative spirit expresses itself. Plank House - "Where Art is my yoga & creativity blooms.”
