Simply Enough

Who: Britta Ambauen
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Tacoma, WA
Web: http://www.brittaambauen.com/
Why: Britta's jewels reflect her training as a printmaker, featuring etched patterns in ethereal earthy designs. She developed a deep interest in metalsmithing after apprenticing with the ever-creative Angie Star Jewelry studio and gallery in Boulder, CO and has brilliantly evolved in her now well-established Northwest coast studio.
Britta's work is minimal and timeless, paring down to instinctual essentials. I love how she respects the natural elements in her work, preserving the spontaneity of her materials and techniques without overdoing the design.
It's easy to enjoy when it's just enough.

She really is talented...etching isn't the easiest of metalsmithing skills and Britta is a whiz at it. Thanks for stopping by!
