I want to wish all of you very happy holidays and a wonderful 2013.
Here's one more artist I met at the annual RISD Alumni Holiday show in Providence. Amie Louise Plante, who lives and works in nearby Cranston, earned her undergraduate degree in fine arts at RISD and a master's degree in artisanry and metals at the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth.
These are a few of my favorite pieces featured on Plante's Etsy store.
Earrings: enamelled silver combined with jade, jasper, and aventurine.
Blue Blossom Dogwood Post Earrings: Metal flowers strung with pearl centers.
Bell-Cluster Jingle Lariat Necklace (Green Enamel): enamelled silver and 18 karat gold are combined with chrysoprase, jade, jasper, peridot.
Plante will accept commissions on one-of-a-kind pieces and make customized versions of any item on her site.
