Thinking about some bling

Today I received an e-mail update from NSCADU (my undergrad school) with updates on certain Alumni. Karen Konzuk (BFA 1997) came to NSCAD to study sculpture, but she took a jewelry course and found herself captivated by the medium. Konzuk now runs a jewelry design studio out of Calgary, Alberta called KONZUK. I already own one of her lovely designs, as she is the designer and maker of the NSCADU grad ring pictured below. I love how untraditional it looks and I feel proud to be a NSCAD grad whenever I wear it!

“NO MORE BORING ART!”

Here are some other beautiful examples from her website:

About AGrayHarper

Andrea Gray Harper is an artist, designer, and maker who incorporates embroidery, screen-printing, and digital techniques into her handmade objects. A native of the Southeastern United Sates, Gray’s exposure to tropical plants and a lack of winter season garnished her love for the outdoors, plants, and bright colors. In 2007 Gray received a B.F.A degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Textiles and Fashion. Since then she has attained an M.F.A in Fibers, participated in various solo and group exhibitions and trade shows, won Second Place in the Annual Juried Artist Book Symposium at the ACA Library of SCAD, and received the Ben C. Morris travel scholarship to study abroad in Cambodia. Today Gray is working on a variety of projects, from photo styling to garden design and event planning.
