Handmade by Vanessa Savlen of Art By Any Means in Rockport, Massachusetts.
My muse and passion has always been about combining the amazing natural colors of gemstones and integrating them in the light sculptural movement of fine mixed metals. Each piece of jewelry is lovingly hand crafted with multiple layers of sumptuous materials, rich in delicate details. Art by any Means Jewelry is crafted in my sun-drenched studio situated in the famous sea side town of Rockport, Massachusetts, a spot that has been alluring artists for decades with its ocean air and the gorgeous light!
Having studied and been inspired by many exciting modern and traditional classic genres, I design jewelry with these flowing principals in mind, capturing the infinite play of balance between chaos and pattern that express our complex and beautifully symbiotic relationship with the world. I’ve been presenting multiple new collections each year while enjoying every carefully crafted step and stone of the process since 1999.
