"Brie Flora is a contemporary jeweler, artist, and educator currently living in Tennessee. Flora graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a dual degree in Metalsmithing & Jewelry and Art Education May 2015. Her handcrafted jewelry plays with symmetry, negative space, patterns, and color. By using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as piercing, forming, and soldering, Brie takes inspiration from nature, fantasy & fiction to create unique sculptural objects and wearable art. Working in both sterling silver and powder coated brass, she looks to achieve an organized maximalist aesthetic that celebrates pops of color, intricate marks, and illustrative forms."
