Sterling, Hand-poured Resin

Lulu Smith Jewelry is the exploration of a colorist. An artist and designer, Lulu hand-
pigments and hand-pours the resin in each piece. Simplicity and bold color outlined
by sterling silver are the central elements of her distinctive style. What results from
her craft and insightful energy is an ever-developing narrative between sterling silver
shapes and an unlimited color palette. Some of her jewelry features sensual,
haphazardly poured color, some are complex, conceptual and exotic, while some
just make you smile from the simple, happy visual impact.

Lulu had an early interest in jewelry and color. As a child, she vividly remembers her
mother hand-dyeing wool to make folk art style rugs and talking to her casually
about the importance of color in people’s lives. She discovered her affinity for
adorning the body when she became preoccupied with sewing, making friendship
pins and hand-braided bracelets as a young girl. This same obsessive habit had
her signing up for metalsmithing classes while in high school and later for two
apprenticeships with local jewelers while in college. She completed her B.F.A. in
1995 with a double emphasis in painting and ceramics, not realizing at that time that
jewelry was really her calling. Shortly after college, Lulu Smith Studio was created,
selling to jewelry stores and galleries nationwide.

Over the last nine years, Lulu has continued to enhance her creativity and hone her
skill. In 1999,she moved from her childhood home of Nebraska to Seattle,
Washington to join the lively arts and metalsmithing community. Since that time, she
has continued educating herself, taking classes at Pratt Art Center to gain a more
intense understanding of techniques in metalsmithing as well as reading about
fellow colorists such as Joseph Albers. She has served on the board of the Seattle
Metals Guild, as well as aligned herself within the arts community by giving
apprenticeship to emerging metalsmith artists. She believes that staying involved in
every way she can is central to the ongoing evolution of her work.

Her work has appeared in American Craft Magazine, Metalsmith Magazine, InStyle
Magazine, and in early spring of  2005 graced the cover the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
