Beth Farber has adapted techniques from antiquity to hand-weave precious metals and gemstones into one-of-a-kind, wearable art. Her integration of ancient textile processes with contemporary perspectives gives her work its unique aesthetic. Profoundly inspired by her experiences living and traveling internationally, Beth’s designs are evocative of exotic lands and are imbued with the colors, shapes, and visual flavors of the cultures she has known.
While the individual elements of Beth’s jewelry consist of stone and metal, which are very hard, when woven together they are transformed into fine jewelry that is soft to the touch and drapes like a shimmering textile. Her jewelry melds to the shape of a wrist or drapes around a neck, retaining its original form but influenced by the individual contours of the wearer. Each piece comes alive as a result, moving with a woman’s body and adapting to her kinetic energy.
