Bio

Abbi Marie is a jewellery artist currently based in Savannah, GA, where she obtained a BFA in Jewelry from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2021. Her work comes from a fascination with the ties between adornment and its relation to personal narrative and expression.  Jewellery can represent the memories we cherish, the people we’ve been to, and the people we hold most dear. In that vein, she uses jewellery as a way to communicate and connect with people. 

Statement

My work comes from a love of crafting and telling stories. I grew up with my nose in a book, enthralled by the worlds and characters contained within the pages, and wishing I could step into their realm. I now seek to capture that same level of whimsy and magic within my own work. Whether it’s a metallic pelt of a chimeric creature or a cloud drift spun into a ring, I’d like to infuse a little bit of wonder into mundanity. Even in the pieces inspired by darker themes, there is a touch of fairy tales, a desire to depict internal struggles in the same way one would legends of heroic battles. The narrative I wish to tell informs the techniques I use to craft a piece. Sometimes that means carving wax into a mythical animal, and other times it’s crocheting wire to mimic gauze. I am first and foremost a storyteller; I just write in metal instead of ink.
