Martha Seely

Martha Seely Design

"While the Sequence collection is influenced by the patterns and textures I see around me in buildings and the natural world, my work is not traditionally nature-inspired or architectural. Instead, my designs have a modern abstract sensibility, reflecting my Scandinavian heritage, with a subtle touch of fun that is uniquely American. "

When Martha Seely looks at the whorls in a seashell, the tendrils of a flower, or the Milky Way galaxy in the sky, she not only marvels at one of nature's most magical patterns, the spiral, she gets inspired to create modern, abstract jewelry. Spirals are examples of a mathematical concept called "the Fibonacci Sequence" that underlies art, architecture, and nature's most beautiful designs.

From her background as a costume designer for theater, films, and television, Martha's metalworking techniques are influenced by fiber and the dramatic art of movement. As a result, this collection is infused with textures, shine and a kinetic energy that flatters women and the clothes they wear. The pieces are textured, polished, and interconnected spirals that move around a central pearl.

Martha holds a BA in art from Connecticut College, and MFA in costume design from Carnegie-Mellon University, and has also studied with master jewelers Cynthia Eid, Jayne Redman, and Ann Cahoon, exploring and refining the techniques of fold forming, hammering, stone setting, wire weaving and cold connections.
