Color, form and mechanical connections have been consistent in the jewelry designs of Lisa Vershbow throughout her career. She creates jewelry and objects that combine traditional jewelry-making techniques with a wide range of non-traditional materials. Less interested in precious metals and stones, Lisa favors many industrial materials like anodized aluminum and plastics, combining them with silver, semi-precious stones and pearls to give a unique look to her work. Although primarily a metalsmith, Lisa works in fiber as well. An avid quilter for years, she has more recently added paper and felt to her repertoire, often combining them with metal.
