Carly Wright, Jewelry Artist

Albany, New York

Carly Wright is a Studio Art Jewelry Designer with 33 years experience exhibiting in nationally juried shows. She has pursued a specific study of Champlévé and Cloisonné techniques in enameling since 1972.

Carly’s jewelry is inspired by the natural world. She is fascinated by cliffs revealing layers of sedimentary rock. She believes that the images that she sees on her daily walks, give her a vocabulary. Carly often stops to sketch , or pick up a stone or a piece of bark. These small objects sit on her drawing table for weeks, sometimes years. When she sits down to design new pieces she looks to them for inspiration, and tries to convey something of what she sees in them to others. She is also drawn to architectural symbols such as windows or doors.
