Sally the designer / owner of Naked-Jewelry has been a long time favorite of mine, her work is always inspiring and thought provoking. I find her eye for combining great stones with her exquisite metal working skills to be a true talent. She is one of the artist I want to be like when I grow up !
On her 1000Market website she describes her work as "Every beautiful piece from Naked-Jewelry is a one-of-a-kind, artisan design using precious metals and natural gemstones. I think of my work as something other than jewelry. I think of it as Precious Metal Wearable Art, designed for the discriminating client who desires unique personal adornment that makes an artistic statement.
Everything in my shop is designed and fabricated by me from my bucolic little studio resting on a hill in my backyard. As I work, I watch the birds, squirrels and spiders go busily about their day. Working so close to nature, my pieces are inspired by the beauty and textures of our wondrous and precious planet."
