Washington DC based Taylor Twigg of Taylor's Electric is entirely self-taught. Jewelry making wasn't her original interest. But she wandered down the creativity path when she realized she preferred working with her hands rather than in academia.
Her hand sculptured jewelry style took many months to develop. It was certainly worth the effort because her amazing designs resemble stained glass work. The soldered wire work beautifully frame pieces of meticulously sealed paper.
It's not surprising to learn that of all the natural inspirations she absorbs, "Sunlight behind leaves on a windy day is my personal kryptonite". That play of light she so loves reminds me of English artist John M.W. Turner's fascination with light.
I had a great deal of trouble trying to choose just a few of her designs to feature! As for Taylor, she says, " My favorite piece is always my next piece." She is clearly an artist to watch right now and in the future!
