Nancy Troske

"I feel a strong connection with goldsmiths from the very distant past: Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine. By working in their materials and techniques there is a sense of continuity, shared tradition and love for meticulous craftsmanship."

Inspired by ancient art, Nancy Troske takes elements from centuries old jewelry and re-interprets them for the modern world. Her timeless pieces can be handed down from parent to child to grandchild.

Ancient goldsmiths practiced techniques of gold granulation, woven metal chains, filigree and enameling. By faithfully employing the same techniques, Nancy Troske produces highly individualized pieces. Working in her own custom alloy of 22k and/or .999 silver, she makes her own sheet and wire. Chains get thousands of hand made jump rings, each ring is fused and shaped one at a time, and woven into a round, square or flat chain. Granules are made from tiny sections of wire, one by one, placed with a small brush onto the piece. It is heated almost to the melting point whereby the granules become one with the backsheet. Clasps, hinges, findings are made entirely by hand. Some pieces can take weeks or even months to produce.

Nancy Troske received a BFA from the University of Bridgeport. After college she studied ancient jewelry making techniques at the Jewellery Workshop & Gallery in NYC under the instruction of Fredricka Kulicke & Joseph English. She relocated to the San Francisco Bay area and was one of the first round of students to study under Alan Revere at the Revere Academy of Goldsmithing (now the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts). Troske then spent several years in New York and took courses at the Gemological Institute of America.
