Strong visual dynamics, and an energy that is immediately engaging, are qualities that characterize jewelry created by Elena Ro. Elena is a prolific artist who creates work that projects a distinctively expressive personality and explodes with a visual energy that is exciting to see. Primarily working with beads and occasionally incorporating wire, Elena's jewelry explores compositional structures that brilliantly integrate color, form and texture, and all these elements are beautifully woven together with outstanding craftsmanship.
Dominated by a primary thematic statement that might be in the form of realistic flowers, leaves or even abstract shapes which are built from beads of contrasting colors and sizes, her color sensitivity is rich and sophisticated. She often uses beads of contrasting colors to create linear patterns that effectively integrate all parts of her beaded necklaces. I hope you enjoy viewing this sampling of beautiful pieces created during 2013 by Elena Ro!
