Artist Profile

Monique Tobet

Medium: Jewelry

Description:  Jewelry in metals with a focus on silver, copper and brass

My work conveys a new perspective on jewelry...each piece I create must make a statement, it must be feminine but strong, just like the woman wearing it. The shapes that I employ are organic in nature, but the material is rugged. I work in metals, with a focus on silver, copper and brass, both virgin and altered. I focus on raw elements of design with complicated, contrasting, asymmetric and imperfect forms, textures and colors. My jewelry is a collaboration. The metal and I both play a role in what it will become. I start with an idea and facilitate the creative process, but the piece ultimately has the final say. As I work the metal, it transforms into whatever it wants to be, and speaks as it must. We make a good team.
