An affinity for geometric forms is at the heart of Lisa Slodki Design’s fine jewelry. Each necklace and pair of earrings is meticulously crafted by hand in the artist’s Logan Square studio. Her work conveys the notion that understatement can make a strong statement.
The line is made in sterling silver and 14k gold-filled jewelry. All of her designs are hand crafted by Lisa, using various wire working techniques and frequently incorporating natural stones.
“The logic and practice of geometry inspires my designs as well as my personal introspection. From the structure of the Milky Way to a snail’s spiral shell, certain patterns can be found throughout living systems. For me, these forms represent patterns of growth.” ~ Lisa Slodki

About the Artisan:
Jewelry designer Lisa Slodki began making jewelry as a childhood hobby using scraps of wire and pliers found on her father’s workbench. Meticulous attention to detail was evident even in her earliest experiments as well as an affinity for geometric forms. Continuing to hone her craft over the years, she received her BFA in Metals/Jewelry Design in 1996. Wire work continues to be at the heart of her designs. Lisa spends most of her days in her studio which overflows with seemingly every kind of wire and plier known to humankind, including a few tools she never managed to return to her father’s workbench.
