Minimal Metals

Peggy Cochran Jewelry Designs
Peggy's work is appealing because it has an unpretentious, archetypal character--sort of a techno-primitive feel. Peggy's work is
... inspired by her interest in architecture, technology, anthropology, history, symbolism, and communication.

Her work is considered 'Art To Wear' and creates a statement that ranges from subtle to bold. Her designs include one-of-a-kind, limited edition, and limited production pieces consisting of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches and small sculptural objects. Her pieces are made of sterling silver and may include bronze, brass, copper and 14 karat gold.

Prior to her metalsmithing career Peggy apprenticed and became accomplished in the art of furniture making, woodcarving, clay modeling and dental technology. She considers herself very fortunate to have studied under a variety of highly skilled artists and artisans whose knowledge and demand for excellence have greatly affected her work. Each of her pieces is meticulously handcrafted and proudly signed by the artist. >>continue>>
Peggy's jewelry can be found at River Gallery in Chattanooga, TN and at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, OR.
