Ashley Buchanan

Ashley Buchanan is an American jewellery artist who received her BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from the University of Georgia in 2009. Ashley’s work is a series of hand-cut, powder coated metal that focuses on image, pattern and decoration in order to reference ornamentation and historical jewelry. As a maker, it is her intention to challenge the conventions of handmade jewellery through the use of traditional materials and new approaches to design and surface decoration. Utilizing silhouettes allows her to reduce historical images down to their most basic form and reference the history of jewellery with a clean, contemporary aesthetic.
