guest star friday #59...angela bubash
angela bubash. angela is a fantastic jeweler, a former penland resident artist, an instructor at appalachian state university, and a good friend of mine. usually i try to find guest stars i'm not familiar with or know only a little about, but i love angela's new work and feel compelled to share it with you. angela has always made beautiful jewelry that is impeccably crafted. in fact, her intricate fabrication and attention to detail often blows me away. her new pieces are no exception. they also have a duality to them that i find most appealing - they are contemporary with a definite nod to the past. angela perfectly balances clean lines and asymmetry with an antique design sensibility. i also like the way she creates dimension, depth, and movement with her "fin" elements.
