Inspired by nature, Carla creates one-of-a-kind jewelry using precious metal, resin, and mixed media. For the Black & White exhibit she explores various processes and materials, contrasts silver with oxidized silver, combines black resin with precious metal and applies pattern ink drawings in resin or to the surface of the material known as scrimshaw.
