there’s a kind of magic that happens when I’m starting to make a new piece of
jewelry; it’s like I am helped along the way by these influential elements that
are not entirely in my control. There’s an excitement and trust in that and it
makes every design unique. I try to keep an organic feel in every piece, while
still being able to vary them from more delicate and airy designs to the more
solid and compact ones. After a piece is finished I love the possibilities of
sharing it with people, hoping to see them connecting with it.
My art is a product of my past and my
emotions. I always keep in mind that what I’m doing now is directly connected
to growing up surrounded by amazing people and nature. For example when I’m
creating a piece of jewelry, I’m immediately brought back to when I used to
play dress up with my grandmother’s jewelry. I think about that antique heirloom
quality and I put that into my jewelry by giving it an elegant and classic look
as well as giving it a patina to make it look older.My piece “Serena” expresses this with its
draping pearls and elegant lines that are anchored by these intricately
I am almost always ruled by my
emotions and so I love creating art because, as cliché as it sounds, it makes
me happy. When I’m soldering or starting the design of a new piece, I am truly “in
the zone” and focusing solely on the task at hand. It’s meditative since all
the troubles and stresses of the rest of my life are forgotten, for the time,
and I can be in the moment. I figure if life’s about the pursuit of happiness
then I’m damn well going to do what makes me happy.
Elemental Origins is original artwork created by Cassie Johnson. An artist from an early age, I've created art since my childhood and through my college career. Nature is my major inspiration and growing up surrounded by it gave me plenty to be inspired by. These pieces are my way of sharing that inspiration and passion for what I do with others.
