NOW MADELEINE FIELDS JEWELRY
After several successful years as Phyllis & Hazel (named for my first two guinea pigs) I've decided to use my name for the brand to help reinforce that all jewelry is exclusively designed and produced by me; Madeleine Fields!
Same lady metalsmith, same jewelry, updated name and branding.
Madeleine Fields was born and raised in a small town in Southeastern Ohio. She has been making and selling jewelry for most of her life. In 2009 she obtained her BFA in Fashion Design from The Columbus College of Art & Design.
"As a child growing up in rural Ohio, my artist father used to take my sister and I to freshly plowed cornfields to dig for fossils and arrowheads. The simplicity of digging a material from beneath the earth with my hands that had some special purposed fascinated me. I think that largely contributed to my choice of materials: rocks and metal. I work with brass, copper, silver, and semiprecious gemstones. I prefer the look of non-faceted, natural materials and often incorporate raw gems into my designs."
Botanically and biologically inspired jewelry made using traditional metalsmithing techniques for the strange and unusual.
All items are handmade by Madeleine Fields in Columbus, Ohio.
