Ellen Millar’s jewelry creations explore a variety of approaches that are characterized by brilliant originality and creative experimentation. Often combining wire with painted watercolor abstractions, her pieces are beautifully composed, and embody a uniquely individual sensitivity for design and materials.
Ellen's use of color is rich and warm, and her pieces display a wonderful chromatic interplay in which she establishes a dominant tonality that is visually energized with complementary color accents.
Working within a range of different types of jewelry that includes pendants, brooches, scarf clips and earrings, her use of wire not only resolves structural and functional issues, but also introduces linear elements that complement and resolve the painted watercolor forms.
Fine craftsmanship and attention to detail are qualities inherent in all her creations, and I hope you enjoy viewing the works that we have selected for display!
