In the Artist's words as listed on her website…
“Old Blood Jewelry and Wears was started in 2012 by Morgan Jamison. A 2009 graduate of the University of Arts Jewelry/Metals program, I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember. It started by picking up treasures on the ground as a child and wearing them. And in a sense that's how it remains… The facination with the things I see and the places I find.
I see jewelry and the things you choose to carry on your body as more than just an expression of identity and as a maker, I see the things we create as more than just an art form. It is a human impule and it is just as old as we are. Even when we are making something new, the need we are answering is an old one.
I make jewelry with the intention of empowering the wearer and captivating a viewer. I employ many processes and materials in my work, rarely does a piece have just one process employed or material used. Color, contrast and textures figure highly into my aesthetic and design choices.
These are hand fabricated, mixed media pieces. Our favorite materials include Brass, Sterling Silver, 14K Gold Filled, Leather, Patina, Semi Precious Stones and Wood.”
