    Curated Jewelry Show: Bethany Bachtel
    Bethany Bachtel

    Bethany discovered metal as a medium while in high school in 2005 thanks to Georgia's Governor's Honors program. She pursued her love of working in metal at the University of Georgia, and graduated in spring 2011 with a B.F.A. in jewelry design and metalwork. Today Bethany strives to create jewelry that excites and empowers women.

    Bethany cuts by hand every piece of metal used in her jewelry. Many of her designs are inspired by Art Nouveau, an aesthetic that combines botanical imagery and female forms. Balancing opposites—handmade with machine finished, natural forms with industrial materials—the hand-cut, flowing forms are finished with a powder coat, which creates a unique and durable finish as well as a sense of mystery.
