| Marti Brown has been designing jewelry for more than 32 years. Marti received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in jewelry making from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. She has studied jewelry and enameling techniques with Richard Mawdsley, Gene and Hiroko Pijanowski, Kent Vanderplas, Heiki Seppa, Eric Lowry, Bill Harper, Bill Helwig, Martha Banyas and Carole Wilcox. |
Her most recent works use Niobium, Silver, Gold and PMC with beads and other accents. It is the color possibilities in the Niobium (Nb) that appeals to her in designing.
Her niobium jewelry is colored using a paintbrush wired to her anodizer, producing a painterly, softer look than is normally found in Nb and titanium jewelry.
