Elizabeth Thompson

Elizabeth Thompson Knight (B.F.A., metals and jewelry, 2005)

Elizabeth was born and raised outside of Philadelphia. She received her B.F.A. in metals and jewelry from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005. In 2003, she spent an inspirational summer in Bali, Indonesia, studying batik, basket weaving and wood carving. She fell in love with the textures, as well as the harmony and form, of natural elements coexisting with created objects. Her first design series was a melodic waterfall design executed in silver bangle and cuff bracelets. For her senior project at SCAD, She produced several bracelets combining exotic hardwoods with metals, pearls, and stones. These were featured in the Lapidary Journal, September 2005. In 2006, she made a brief foray into handmade furniture making at the prestigious BDDW in Brooklyn, N.Y., to heighten her woodworking skills. In 2008, she opened Fluxwork Studio in Brooklyn – a fully outfitted jewelry design studio conceived to provide rental working space for artisans. Enthused by the primitive structure of a pair of scorpions that she used in a photo shoot of her jewelry, she composed her current collection with cast segments of the scorpions, as well as a symphonic assortment of other skeletal forms and structures, into necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
