Growing up in Wisconsin, Audra has had a lifelong fascination with the outdoors. An appreciation for natural beauty imbues her work with a refined rustic sensibility. They are pieces people feel a connection with and wear every day.
Using traditional jewelry making techniques, she shapes copper, silver and bronze, often combining them for contrast. Semi-precious stone beads and cabochons provide hints of color. Found objects will work their way into her heart and designs. Reinvented and combined with leather, silk cord, silver or beads, they lend an earthy quality to her work.
