Artisan Spotlight

Liz Hansen is an Albemarle County-based metalsmith and jeweler. An art major,

Liz began exploring metal work in 2014, attending workshops and trainings

offered by Penland School of Craft and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts as

well as skilled individual artists. Each piece is crafted by hand by Liz in her

studio. Today she specializes in sterling silver designing comfortable,

contemporary pieces. She searches for clean, fluid shapes that emerge from

forging, fabrication and casting to create minimalist jewelry as

accessories or statements. The jewelry works as either every day items or

one-of-a-kind specialty pieces
