Carly Wright has a BPA, (the equivalent of a BFA), from Empire State College, a university without walls program associated with the State University of New York. She also studied the art of enameling at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina where she was a scholarship student from 1980-84.

My jewelry is inspired by the natural world. I am fascinated by cliffs revealing layers of sedimentary rock. I believe that the escarpments and old stone walls that I see on my daily walks, give me a vocabulary with which to work. I often stop to sketch, take a photo, or pick up an interesting stone. These small objects sit on my drawing table for weeks, sometimes years. When I sit down to design new pieces I look to them for inspiration. My travels to Ireland, Italy, France and England have also been a source of inspiration. I particularly love the old stone windows and doorways found in ancient ruins.

The creation of art begins for me as a journey into a intuitive and playful part of myself.   My sketches are loose, fluid and fast, using drafting and colored pencils. Later, I return to these ideas, looking for interesting compositions and beautiful lines in the stones. I don’t consider myself to be a jewelry designer in the usual sense in that  I don’t work with gems, elements and settings. Rather I work as a 2-D artist; my work is often described as painterly. I like to think of my works as  small pieces of art to wear.

    • Rectangular Enamel Pendant by Carly Wright

      Blue, Green, and Purple.

      The process begins by transferring a design onto tissue paper which is glued to a thin sheet of sterling silver. The outside edges of the piece are cut to the specifications of the design and accents. The Silver is oxidized to a steely gray color by dipping it into a malodorous solution of Liver of Sulfur. Then rubbed with pumice or steel wool to burnish it to a soft glow.

      Pendant measures approx. 1/2"w x 1 1/2"h.
      16" snake chain.

      Handmade in New York

    • The technique that I specialize in is Champlévé, (this is a French term meaning “raised fields”). Enameled objects date back to the early part of the first millennium and were found throughout the ancient world. In the champlevé technique, recessed areas are created for the enamel, either by construction, casting, etching, or engraving.

      The transparent enamels I work with are imported from Austria, Japan and France. These vitreous enamels are specifically designed to tolerate the rapid changes in temperature that occur when a piece is fired, going from room temperature to 1600 degrees in a matter of seconds. The enamels fuse to the metal in a similar way that a glaze fused to a pot.
