Eric Silva Art Jewelry

June 10, 2011 6-10p

Eric Silva creates hand crafted,
one of a kind adornments with which he
thoughtfully intermixes metals with
organic materials such as found antler
and recycled wood.

Silva simultaneously expresses his
Native American roots and the modern
world that surrounds him. The
effortlessness of his designs make
them easy to wear yet are imbued with
a deep and symbolic connection to
the ancient.
