Abracadabra Jewelry goes Live!

. August 20, 2020.

A family-owned and operated full-service jeweler operating in downtown Ann Arbor since 1974, Abracadabra jewelry specializes in on-site custom design & production, repairs, and appraisals. Alongside their own work, they also feature jewelry made by local artists, exclusive national designers, and fair-trade international artisans. 

Join Abra tomorrow, August 21st at 4pm EDT via IG Live @abrajewelry for a virtual Meet the Maker event with artist Natalie La Bruzzy. 

“By contrasting the fine delicateness of organic elements with the harshness of metal, my work turns fragility into strength.” – Natalie La Bruzzy

With a background in metal sculpture conservation and a deep love for the outdoors, Natalie La Bruzzy utilizes a variety of metal fabrication processes to craft wearable art informed by nature. From layering metal alloys to creating molds of found objects, such as reclaimed animal bones & plant-inspired components, to applying proprietary patinas, La Bruzzy combines multiple techniques to create jewelry that is simultaneously industrial and organic. 

A graduate of Wayne State University’s metalsmithing sculpture program, and an apprentice jeweler at Abracadabra, she uses recycled sterling silver, bronze, and carefully sourced semi-precious gems to explore the space between fine jewelry and functional artistry. 

Tune in while Natalie takes us on a tour of her workspace, gives a demo, and shows off pieces from her latest collection. Shop her work here.

The event will be recorded and available to view on Abra’s Youtube, along with the rest of their Meet the Maker series, for those that will be unable to attend.
