Elizabeth Garvin an artist working in the medium of jewelry. It’s the perfect form to express her interest in natural sciences, geology and metallurgy, to balance these components within strong, feminine, relatable pieces, and to work each day with the most beautiful elements. She designs jewelry with a distinctly modernist sensibility. Inspired by natural geometry, the imagery is powerful, often provocative yet intrinsically familiar. As a woman designing for women, Garvin knows what a woman responds to, what feels right, and what jewelry means to her. As a self taught jeweler, her technical curiosity and proprietary approach imbue each piece with a bold signature style. As the daughter of an architect and engineer, her approach to structure and mechanics is elegant and fluid. The studio of Elizabeth Garvin Fine is run like a small atelier of artisans, using the oldest traditions of jewelry making with the newest technologies, flawlessly executed by a team of talented, skilled hands.
Elizabeth Garvin graduated with honors from New York University with additional studies at Massachusetts College of Art and Parsons School of Design. Through studies of dance, music, painting, sculpture, film, photography, her approach to metalsmithing draws from a wide range of thought and imagery, process and vision. From the gestural to the highly technical, a world of ideas finds harmony and balance in her works.
