I met Caryn Hetherston at the Piedmont Craftsmen Guild’s show in November. She was kind enough to ask me to photograph some of her beautiful jewelry. Her work is an interesting blend of influences.
To my eye it has some Native American components, combined with some Art Deco influences, all in a very modern presentation. I really enjoy the large stones and the overall boldness and robustness of her work, which nevertheless includes a high degree of subtlety and finish. It was a pleasure to photograph!
