Elisa Bongfelt

Berkeley, CA

Elisa is a gradiate of the California College of the Arts and Crafts in the metal arts department. Upon graduation in 1994, she started a studio in Berkeley, CA, where she makes one of a kind and production jewelry.  Elisa's work is influenced by industrial design, she exhibits internationally. 

For the past few years I have been using sterling silver tubing to make my work, in addition to 22k bimetal.  I am inspired by the industrial aesthetic of the material, finding endless design possibilities.  Using change of scale and repetition of form, my goal is to create timeless work that is modern and wearable.
