Metalsmith Xavier Von creates her pieces in Houston, TX with music flowing through the air. Her wearable art is crafted by hand, be it through fabrication, carving, or casting. She is inspired by the sprawling, urban landscape of the city and like to intermingle my pieces with the natural world she sees in her day to day, as well as the cosmos.
“I believe that urbanization should be more integrated with and mindful of nature and that we are all connected to the cosmos. I love to reflect these ideals in my work, designing contemporary, biomorphic, space inspired, and offbeat sculptural jewelry made of silver and gold, often accented with semi-previous stones or unexpected organic material, like up-cycled car glass or beetle wings. I hope you find the piece that speaks to you.”
