From Richmond, VA
Austin Titus finds beautiful juxtaposition between the industrial elements of living in a historical city contrasted with the natural world around her.
With a love of fine craft and a reverence for traditional metalsmithing, Austin fabricates her jewelry using reclaimed sterling silver, karat golds and an array of semi precious stones selected for color, character and even imperfections.
She finds beauty in the imperfect, tactile nature of an object that has been handmade - raw edges, hammer and file marks - these are the signature of the maker and a timeline of the process.
When Austin is not in her studio, she enjoys walking the city streets with her dog, Lola.
