Jera Lodge

"I love to create jewelry that has the illusion of volume while staying very lightweight."

Jera Lodge is a studio jeweler who focuses on creating lightweight, pattern-based jewelry. She assembles crisp, architecturally inspired shapes with unique connections, resulting in playful, kinetic, and interactive jewelry. Her distinctive approach to material value yields surprising combinations of steel, gold, silver, and spray paint, creating unexpected moments of beauty.

Each piece of jewelry is hand formed and finished. Keum-bo gold surfaces are achieved using 24k gold foil that has been bonded to silver sheet, while colored ombre effects are created with a spray-painting process. Further distressing is done by hand, resulting in a unique color application for each piece of jewelry. Jewelry with steel wire has been sealed with wax or a clear topcoat.

Since earning her BFA from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Lodge has traveled across the country working at craft schools, participating in artist residencies, and exhibiting at craft shows. She currently maintains her full-time studio practice in Philadelphia, PA.
