Naomi Ellenberg-Dukas Jewelry Artist
As a child I watched my mother work in fashion design and as a sculptor. We shared a love of color, texture and innovative, sleek design. In my work I use a wide variety of beautiful beads from all over the world. My jewelry, purses and scarf designs start with an idea, my trove of beads and gems, and any material that inspires – Swarovski crystals, seed beads, sea glass, polymer clay, inner tubes, zippers, straws, resin ... anything that generates a creative design. I find beauty in everything and can make art out of anything. At the end of the day I fall asleep picturing new ideas and often wake in the middle of the night with the solution for a design problem. I specialize in custom work, melding the ideas and feelings of the client with my own to create a piece that artistically captures the wearer’s unique personality or the meaning of a special occasion.
