About Our Art
Nena Galloway Potts, a Missouri born artist is a professional jewelry designer and metalsmith. Nena’s work is as diverse as the materials that she chooses to use in her unique and wearable jewelry. The term metalsmith refers to the ability to utilize many materials and techniques to create artwork in metal. Nena uses gold, silver, brass, bronze, copper, and niobium along with precious stones and sometimes not so precious materials. Of course not all of these materials are used in one design, but each work is created with the utmost attention to the inherent characteristics of the materials chosen.
Nena’s one of a kind and limited production gold and silver jewelry is unique and elegant. Each piece has it’s own identity and reflection of her individualistic style.
“Out of the Blue” is Nena’s collection of miniature bird houses, cats and garden related jewelry, or wearable whimsy.
“For Every Season” is jewelry with a more serious and sophisticated representation of nature and the changing seasons.
“Sticks and Stones” were probably nature’s first form of personal adornment. Six different tiny sterling stone designs represent joy, love, friendship, courage, peace and strength. Each piece is created with care to celebrate the uniqueness of life. Earrings, necklaces and bracelets, made with sterling silver and bronze are interesting to wear and a joy to give and collect.
Whether you are looking for elegance or just pure fun, jewelry by Nena might be the perfect gift, or the perfect way to express your own personality.
