  • Rollin with the ponies

    For those of you who don't already know, I'm horse crazy. I've been looking for ways to incorporate equestrian themes into my work without being too Old West tchotchke, and more relatable than Gucci's golden bits and buckles. 

    I'm also always looking for ways to tell a story with my jewelry, and preserve a memory. A while ago I figured it out: roll horse hair imprints into metal. Armed with fists full of mane and tail hair from my trainer's Morgan mare, I've been crunching out ways to make it work ever since.

  • Bangals and bangles and bangals

    In honor of my two new shop assistants, I've decided to outline the differences between two very important things in my life: bangals and bangles.

    Meow, these two homonymulous words may sound alike, but I don't think they could be much more different. To start, I received two bangals for Christmas from my wonderful husband, but I know of more than one person who was lucky enough to open an Emily Pramik Jewelry gift last week and receive bangles. I don't make bangals, I make bangles. Two, bangals are always soft and fuzzy and bangles are usually made...

  • Baby, it's cold outside

    Brrr. 

    Like many a lady on a Friday night, I had nothing to wear to my gallery holiday party. Most of my favorite jewelry was already on display, so time, clever fingers, and a studio full of raw metal came together to accessorize me for the evening. The toughest, and best, part of making something is usually inspiration, so I dragged my space heater to my chilly bench and started to think of what I want. The answer? To be in Morocco!

    I've always loved the intricate, geometric shapes of Islamic art and architecture, and ever since visiting...

  • In The Midst of My Colorado Travels I've Come

    In the midst of my Colorado travels I’ve come across many a wandering soul. Perhaps they find comfort in beaconlessness; some may not have a map to guide their weary feet, and others simply don’t have a good sense of direction. For the lattermost folk, I have invented a key to your survival.

    My Mountain|Compass ring may look like a simple piece of bijou perfection, or even a fierce weapon for encounters with inner-mountain billy goats gone territorial, but the real treasure is hidden in its functionality: the ring can help you find cardinal directions.

    Step 1.)...

  • A Mobius Strip is a Physical Twist of Reality

     

    A Möbius strip is a physical twist of reality that bridges the gap between a two-dimensional and three-dimensional world, like, if you made a paper doll Dolly Parton.

    This particular example of Möbius stripial fantasticality was made with a copper wire skeleton, silver end caps, and wire that was dyed blue with dragon’s blood. The dragon’s blood lends a deep blue color, almost as dark as the cave within which I slayed said dragon. How was I able to slay such a mighty, unrestrainedly fanciful beast? Because...

  • Hair Armor From the Depths of Our Planet

     

     

    HAIR ARMOR!

    From the depths of our planet came mighty Copper, an element so strong it could protect Scott’s hair from menacing bombardments of it’s evil foe: festivals. As partying and dancing ensued, the great battle began and the hair emerged victorious. It’s all thanks to this fine, articulated hairpiece designed and crafted by yours truly. What will our hero Copper save next? Stay tuned!

  • Musical Hand Bling is Back

     

    Guess who’s back? Musical hand bling is back, with lovely aquamarine stones to liven up the un-heavy metal.

    Why is aquamarine so special? It’s long been associated with healing of the eyes, with the wise folks of antiquity placing ground stone powder under lids each morning to aid healing. You’re welcome to stick these beauties in your eye, but I don’t support the idea and kindly request that you purchase them first.

    Reason #2 aquamarines are so special: they’re March’s birthstone, the most fabulous month of the year!

    Solid brass bangle with A-grade aquamarine set...

  • Every Color Adds Up to Paint the Canvas

    Every color adds up to paint the canvas of our beautiful world, and with the extra attention on gay rights of late, I’ve decided to lend a helping hand.

    Half of proceeds from my Rainbows gear will go to Denver’s THE CENTER, supporting LGBT programs and advocacy in Colorado.

    Here’s a sweet little necklace that looks great and DOES GOOD (brass, colored wire, swarovski crystals, $30).
