About Everyday Elemental
Each piece in this collection is one of a kind. They were created to invoke the some wonder of nature, whether a specific stone, a property of metal or a grand cosmic idea. Helping people to connect with and be reminded of the awesome power of the natural world - physics, chemistry, biology and more - is an absolute joy.
These pieces also intentionally reflect nature's variation, embracing imperfection and constantly evolving. Stylistically, they are simple, bold designs, often focused on geometric and colorful elements. Every piece is its own work of art just waiting to be worn.
About the Artist
Hi there! I'm Janice, the artist behind Everyday Elemental.
Nature and curiosity have always been my inspiration and they drive my work. When I'm not making jewelry, I can be found exploring wild (and some not-so-wild) places around the world, watching for stones - special colors or textures that catch my eye. While I do buy some stones, the ones I shape and polish from raw materials are my favorites.
Back in my studio I sketch jewelry designs, joining my own creativity with a stone’s natural flash of light or beautiful color. I work primarily in silver - cutting, shaping, soldering and polishing - all by hand. Sometimes I forgo jewelry altogether to create textile art, photographs, and paintings.
