About the Event
Heather Bamberg is a wife, mother, artist and entrepreneur. She first fell in love with metalsmithing during a short project-based class in 2002, soon after going on to pursue her BFA in Jewelry/Metalsmithing at Northern Arizona University. Heather also studied photography, printmaking, illustration and ceramics.
When it comes to her jewelry, each piece is handcrafted of recycled precious metals in an off-grid studio located in the high desert forest of Northern Arizona. Heather maintains a strong commitment to sustainability by employing solar power and harvesting rain water to supply her studio.
With a clean, modern aesthetic her work draws inspiration from the rugged beauty of the Northern Arizona landscape. Simple lines are offset by bold textures and genuine gemstones.
“I hope the joy that I feel while metalsmithing is apparent in the pieces I make. I love the whole process: from the design stage, into the fabrication and finishing. There are so many steps but each one is tangible and exciting!”
