For 20 years, jeweler Valerie Mitchell has focused on the form of structure, where it comes from and its application. She finds the truth in the repetition of natural structure reflects life, echoes the past, present and future.

Her sculptural jewelry is based on the microscopic structure of organic forms interpreting undulating process of biological growth. The pieces may be hand-carved, copper electroform and surfaced with patinas or high fire enamel or cement is poured into forms constructed with 18k gold, silver and embedded materials, a dichotomy of industrial/organic form.
