Art + Jewelry
Kari Breitigam’s designs are born from a commitment to bring warmth to a minimalist aesthetic. Heavily inspired by the subtle irregularities of ancient jewelry metalwork and by modernist biomorphic sculpture, her works strike a balance between classic and contemporary. Textures and organic shapes play integral roles in each design. Kari’s jewelry designs stem from her studio art practice. The materials used in her fiber artwork served as the initial inspiration for the jewelry collection, as the first necklaces were made from leftover yarn and hand-dyed textiles. The pieces have since evolved, but the studio art and jewelry design practices continue to inform one another.
