Profile

Christina Venturini, Jewelry Artist

Jewelry, Knits, Felted Soap
I love to knit and I love to hammer... Knitting fills me with Zen and Hammering channels my Chi. Knitting never ceases to amaze me... what you could create with your own two hands when you have the will to learn by manipulating two sticks and string. As for designing and creating jewelry pieces, I love every aspect of silversmithing, soldering and working with various types of metals, stones and beads. It is simply mesmerizing to me to see how the metal start to take on a different shape and form depending on how you manipulate it. I love my work even when the end result isn't always what I expected... why? because I learn from it. Christina Venturini-
