Randi has been making jewelry since 1987. She began exploring forms in metal
at Parsons School of Design, New York City, as part of her studies there. From
Parsons, Chervitz transferred to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, the
“Harvard” of metalsmithing, to study with internationally-known jeweler, Richard
Mawdsley.
Since graduating in 1991 with a Cum Laude double major in Metal and Fiber, Chervitz
has been hard at work keeping her artwork at the center of her life. In 1991, she began
selling her work; jewelry pieces that explore fiber techniques in metal. Her influences
include couture fashion; its history, expressiveness, and relationship to everyday life.
Also important to Randi are the transformationof the role of women in the past fifty
years, and the emergence of the self as one grows through life.

“I first picked up my grandmother’s crochet hook while taking a metal-smithing class in
college. My grandmother had taught me to knit when I was a child, and I always had
good feelings about the individual stitches that make up a larger whole; a fabric.
Immediately, crochetingsilver and gold to make wearable objects became my signature.
It’s been many years since that epiphany. As I progress artistically, I find myself using
my technique to explore formal concepts such as line quality, pattern, composition, and
form. And to honor my history - all of our history - I still find it exciting to transform the
very fabric of our lives into something precious through metal.” - Randi Chervitz
