Bio/Artist Statement

Silversmith and jewelry designer Candy Emerson says, “Handcrafting jewelry makes me smile! Look at the titles of career self-help books and the message is to follow your passion, do what you love and determine the color of your parachute. So, I moved to the beautiful Asheville, NC area, set up a jewelry workshop and determined that my favorite parachute color is the next one.”

“When I look at a striking or interesting landscape, flower, leaf, animal, dragonfly or architectural detail, I am inspired to think about how it will translate into a piece of jewelry.”
