Vickie Hallmark

"The most common response to my jewelry is amazement at the level of detail. My husband calls me "Picky Vickie" because I'm a bit obsessive about getting the details just right. Be sure to examine the reverse, clasp, or other special elements of my pieces for hidden delights."

As an avid gardener and birdwatcher, Vickie Hallmark draws inspiration for her jewelry from the fauna and flora that gather around the stock tank pond in her central Texas garden. The scenes that appear in her work are based on studio views of the treetops, where warblers and wrens flit from branch to branch, or adapted from close examination of the native plants she cultivates.

Each bird, leaf, and flower is hand-sculpted in silver or gold clay with details interpreted through an artistic eye. Once reduced to pure metal, these tiny elements are then combined with recycled Argentium silver, high karat gold, and colorful gemstones to create charmingly individual vignettes meant to be worn and treasured.

Trained as a research scientist, Vickie Hallmark studied gold and silver for many years before returning to her birth name's heritage of metalsmithing (a "hallmark" is both a maker of and purity mark for fine metals). After training with recognized master jewelers, she combined classical techniques with her own experimental nature to develop a unique blend of high tech materials and processes.
