About Maine Artist Christine Peters | Fine Handcrafted Jewelry
Christine Peters maintains a home studio where she works constantly and consistently. It allows her the perfect climate to design and fabricate. Form, texture, and color meld together as she bends and solder and enamels and patinates.
Everything motivates me to create: a winter sunset, a branch, a bug, a tiny flower, the all-powerful sea. Natural forms are the inspiration for my designs, each one of a kind executed in sterling silver, 18 karat gold and precious and semiprecious stones.
I’ve been designing and creating jewelry since 1996. I show my work in many galleries and shops in Maine and beyond. I also have a network of private clients for whom I do custom work. I maintain a home studio where I can design and fabricate constantly and consistently. Form, texture, and color meld together as I bend and solder and patinate.
I was trained in sculpture at Boston University. For four years I carved stone, pushed clay and welded steel. I moved to Maine in 1995, and lacking a large studio, I gravitated toward jewelry where all I needed was a bench and a torch. I continued my studies at Maine College of Art, Metalwerx, Haystack, and privately with several Maine jewelers, who are now my colleagues. I am always trying to push my metalwork and design sense to new levels.
