Tammy B

"I create bold jewelry that contributes a bit of attitude to the wearer. It excites me to see people discover my work and make a connection to my point of view. For me, that is the most fulfilling part about being an artist."

Jewelry artist Tammy B is drawn to asymmetry and enjoys playing with composition. In her work, you will often find strong diagonal lines that create visual movement and fill her pieces with energy. She strives to make statement jewelry that goes beyond simply adorning the body.

Tammy B uses sterling silver and a wide variety of natural stones. She creates all of her jewelry by hand using traditional metalsmithing techniques, including hand forming and soldering. She particularly enjoys the process of bezel setting—especially for stones that present a challenge. She uses an array of textured surfaces and often finishes pieces with an oxidized patina.

Tammy B studied art with an emphasis in metalsmithing at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Following school, she worked 24 years as a bench jeweler and assistant to nationally known jewelry artist Sydney Lynch. Since then, Tammy has been showing her own designs. She currently works from her home studio in Lincoln, Nebraska.
