The name art-ture originates from a blending of art and architecture. Arden, who is a practicing architect, creates wearable art bringing structure, color and texture together in a composition that is both functional and pleasing. Arden works with polymer which is blended with a variety of materials. Nuts, bolts, and gears are the inspiration for much of her work. Each of her pieces is handmade and one-of- a-kind.
