Elaine Unzicker

Chain Mail Jeweler

2″ Gold Pod Necklace

When does jewelry become art? Is important jewelry made only with precious metals and gems? How does jewelry transform the wearer? Elaine Unzicker, a member of the Ojai Studio Artists, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, Master of Science in Art and Master of Fine Art. Her specialty is working with chain mail, a material that is tantalizingly soft and hard at the same time. Traditional jewelry pieces such as earrings, chokers and bracelets form but a part of her work. The clothing pieces she designs are truly wearable art: unique, stylish and definitely cool (in all senses).
Unzicker’s documentation was sponsored by Meg and Jim Easton. The AfterGlow was hosted by The Old Broad Catering Company.
