Andrea Corson takes fresh and innovative approaches to making her sterling silver, gold, bronze and brass handmade jewelry collection. Corson enjoys
natural beauty, simplicity, detail, drama, glamour and humor. Corson is constantly challenging herself, to produce ever evolving organic, yet modern, timeless designs.
Many of Corson’s pieces are one of a kind, and individually made. Working intuitively, alongside her collections of everyday recognizable shapes and symbols, toys and curious objects, Corson pays extraordinary attention to form and detail. In Andrea Corson’s collection, there are the Caviars, Links, Natural World and Abstracts, all creating the unexpected to be worn and treasured. The Caviars, are drips and drips of magnificent tiny sparkling irregular balls. The Links are chains, having no two links identical. In Natural World, there are botanicals, creatures and animals. The Abstracts are free form.
Corson uses the most basic wax working tools, a few forms for specific functional shapes, all of her ideas, and the control of her hands, to sculpt the wax models for lost wax casting. The finishing process is primarily done by her hand, which gives play to the natural and sculpted elements of the work.
Andrea Corson has her BFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University and her MFA in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Corson continues to make sculpture and drawings, and finds it most influential to making jewelry.
