Tracy Arrington Studios

"Art, in any form, is a very personal statement. A piece of handcrafted jewelry should speak to you, light up your eyes, and give you confidence in your own special beauty."

Surrounding herself with an array of precious metals and gemstones ignites Tracy Arrington's creativity. As she plays with these materials, she develops new designs and collections, focusing on pieces that are striking, wearable, and distinctive. Arrington loves the contrast of luxurious gold with the deep steel-gray of oxidized silver; she uses these and other materials in her work.

Texture and contrast are an integral part of Tracy Arrington's designs. Each element, such as spirals, swirls, and disks, are cut, formed, and textured by hand using a rolling mill or hammer. Sterling silver elements are oxidized to set off the beauty of the gold. Gemstones are individually chosen and hand-wrapped. Each design is created one piece at a time in her Florida studio.

After earning a BA, Arrington spent 12 years as a buyer and merchandiser in the gift, home decor, and education fields. In 2008, she decided to follow her passion: she started designing and creating beautiful jewelry. She received formal bench training and continues to study under many talented goldsmiths across the country. She shares her Orlando studio with her blue-mitted ragdoll cat, Olivia.
