Paulette Werger makes jewelry, vessels and flatware that draw upon botanical imagery, mythology and folk tales. I have an interest in the abstracted patterns commonly found in plant life. Form, texture, and pattern borrowed from my garden are the basis for the collage-like surfaces and simple volumes in my metalwork. My neckpieces, rings, earrings and beads combine a variety of materials including gold, silver, pewter, hand cut gems & pearls. Vessels and spoons allow me to explore both the scale and function of table service.It’s simple, I love what I do!MFA-University of WI-Madison, BS in Art-College of St. Rose-Skidmore College.
