Artist Statement

“I am fascinated by colors and their interplay with each other. The glass I form allows me to create organic looking micro mosaics in simple and clean geometric forms.”

Tina Ellis’s micro mosaic jewelry is inspired by a love of mixing and interpreting color gradations. She treats each piece of jewelry as if it were an individual painting. Each of her larger mosaics tell their own story. From wall pieces to three dimensional pieces, her love of color also shines through.

Ellis begins her new jewelry creations with smalti, a Venetian glass made specifically for mosaics. She mixes her colors and heats the glass to a molten mass. From that state, she then pulls stringers to create her palate. Colorful stringers are then sorted, cut into tesserae and combined to create ‘micro mosaic paintings’ in sterling silver forms as wearable art pieces.

She continues to create her micro mosaic jewelry in ‘blingy’ dichroic glass. These pieces are real show stoppers.
