San Francisco-based jewelry artist Eko Wright’s artistic journey began when she became intrigued by the way a torch and tools can transform a sheet of metal into wearable art. Her style is minimalistic and airy, yet still makes a statement. Sterling silver is the perfect medium for translating these aesthetics into jewelry.
Elements from both the earth and the sky inspire her current designs. Organic shapes influenced by the Japanese concept of wabisabi, the imperfect simplicity of nature, highlight her Botanical Collection. Eko employs fold-forming techniques and hammer work to create distinct three-dimensional organic forms. Presented as a group, these pieces evoke the rustic elegance of a hidden garden. Viewed individually, each piece is a contemporary interpretation of a natural shape.
Eko’s Galaxy Collection showcases geometric forms suggesting the mystery and infinity of the cosmos. In her Dreams-Come-True line, the hand-set gemstones represent twinkling stars, and she hopes whoever wears these pieces will see their dreams come true.
Eko’s jewelry honors nature, the material, and the individual. She seeks to project serenity and tranquility in every piece she creates.
Eko’s work has been featured at Museum of Craft and Design and Asian Art Museum gift shops, ACCI and other select galleries in the San Francisco Bay Area.
