Elise Moran is inspired by nature’s perfect design. Since 1993 she has explored translating the complex and balanced forms that she sees in nature, into small metal sculptures to be worn and to adorn. "It is one of my favorite challenges...to see a beautiful flower or branch and to figure out how to recreate it in silver and gold," says Moran. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and has her BFA in Jewelry and Light Metals.
