Pippit Carlington of Giftbearer offers Contemporary Tribal style jewelry based on her Iroquois roots and other indigenous cultures. Her body of work utilizes a variety of different techniques and materials such as metalwork, beadweaving, and fiber resulting in a look that puts a new twist on traditional symbols.
Recurrent themes of regeneration, resilience and enchantment show up in a number of forms to take the viewer on a journey of intrigue through the senses.
The interplay of light, color, texture, and sometimes sound draws you into a rich inner world brimming with possibility.
"I approach each piece as a living being with a soul. If I can convey this essence to the viewer and have it speak to them on a deeper level then I have done what I've set out to do. I want my work to be more than merely an accessory, but something treasured with special meaning to the buyer, not necessarily in words, but in the same way you know it when it's true love."
