Cameron Kruse has never considered herself an artist in the traditional sense, but rather a creative spirit who loves to work with her hands. And metal is her chosen medium. Following her instinct to mold and meld, this metalsmith artist gets her hands wonderfully dirty on the regular, sculpting jewelry from sterling silver or 14-karat gold-filled metal. Each and every adornment starts with raw materials that are cut, formed, hammered and polished by Cameron herself in her quaint home studio in downtown Athens where her beloved cat Stella holds court. Cameron’s works are unique enough to be noticed, but simple enough to wear every day. Hands down, the best compliment.
