Kelly Nedderman

Kelly Nedderman is a Minneapolis (recently via San Francisco) based artist, educator and designer, who balances her time between commercial design and making unique, one of a kind adornments.

   "Trained primarily as a textile designer, I strive to combine my passion for metal with my passion for pattern, repetition and textures every time I sit down at my bench. I am drawn to the compelling contrast between modern and organic imagery. In practicing my craft I have melded my textile work into components used in my jewelry.  Shapes and patterns created using printmaking techniques are merged together with simple geometrical forms, creating rhythm and contrast."
