Tracey Tranen began metalworking in earnest after retiring from a job that wasn’t half as much fun.  Having a quirky sense of humor, many of her pieces can be described as ‘playful’. She loves geometric and architectural forms and dimensions as well as negative space.

This year she’s concentrated on using new methods of construction (to her). Her earrings fall into two main categories:

  • Painted steel and anodized niobium balls made of welded jump rings

  • Polymer clay figures – both aerial gymnasts and pole dancers – along with their silver hoops and poles.

Here’s hoping they bring a smile to your face.
