ARTwear Artist of the Day: Aimee Eckert

 

The crackling of a crushed tea stained paper, the sound of a train pulling out a station as a women watches her one true love slip away, the bustle of cobblestone streets with trolleys and horses; are all visions found in dreams and in Aimee Eckert’s work.  By fusing together ancient or antique designs with found objects, Aimee brings to life a world before ours; with copper and photographs she creates a journey through time.  Wearable time travel is made beautiful with handmade metal work, and careful collage.  Before venturing into jewelry she restored vintage fashion dolls, even publishing a book on the subject.  Her ability to make the past a vital part in innovative pieces, makers her jewelry a piece wearable artwork worthy of an heirloom.
