Painter turned chemist and now jewelry designer Ava Austin has developed her own enameling technique with contemporary polymers. Individually handcrafted in Sonoma County, California - her unique, intricately designed Copper FaCuffs and FaBands are lightweight adjustable and waterproof.
"Painting was a hobby while I earned my degree Kinesiology and minor Chemistry. After working in both fields, I finally came to accept my joy in life comes from colors, patterns and working with my hands. My current art form is a combination of metal work, sculpture and painting. My canvas is copper, the colors are my own enameling technique."
