I am absolutely amazed by the fantastic jewellery by Emily Cobb. Here are some examples of her work and her statement. To see more of her work check out, http://www.emily-cobb.com/


The illustration enchants me; it has a title and caption, but no story.
I feel compelled to envision the narrative…to create the before and after…to solve the mystery.

An enduring fascination with Chris Van Allsburg’s book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick inspires me to produce illustrative jewelry. I generate each piece from personal fables that often contain animals as central parts of the imagery. When the body becomes part of the composition it animates the work, and I want this interaction to spark creative discussion and dialog. The descriptive titles and captions are meant to encourage further interpretation of the objects, and through the juxtaposition, metamorphosis, and abstraction of representational forms, my work is intended to captivate the imagination.

    As a strong admirer of both yours and Kelly’s work, I am completely humbled and thankful for your comments and feature. A couple friends of mind from undergrad heard you speak at Brooklyn Metalworks last month and were, not surprisingly, very impressed by your presentation. Best of luck on all of your future endeavors.
