Crystal Hartman Art Jewelry

Shop Sculptural Art Jewelry carved in wax and cast in recycled silver, bronze and gold by Crystal Hartman...

Crystal Hartman is a multi-media artist and sculptural jeweler.  Inspired by color, texture, storytelling and line, she creates abstract botanical paintings and illustrations in ink, watercolor, acrylic and oil on paper and canvas, assemblage artist books, video, and sculptural jewelry drawn in wax. In the studio, large colorful paintings inspire sculptural miniatures with the warmth of conscious creation and intimacy meant to be worn for memory, love and courage, individually as a talisman, as an art object. Casting originals in recycled metals and setting natural, conflict-free stones, custom designs are available… please contact with questions or proposals.

The Bees: An ongoing meditation on pollinators and pollination, always open to collaboration…

(Portfolio and exhibition information soon…)

Several scrolls from The Bees are currently showing at Forty Point One, Champaign Illinois, with Paper Trails, Feb-April 2019

In the spring on the sun soaked, rich, red dirt that held my body, stuck in my hair and remains in my pockets and heart, I lay with the wild honeybees that carried me to their trees and changed a cold concept of nature and service into a warmth and harmony worth sharing.  Willowtail Springs offered me the space to breathe, listen and relate a story of the natural world.  Inspired by the quiet and hum of life, by the ripples in the lake that found their way onto the handmade rice paper scrolls, this series of pollinators was created in a temporal process with honey-based watercolor, ink and chalk.
