Elaine Unzicker


I create seductive, wearable objects combining jewelry techniques with chain mail to caress the female body. As a child, I was taught to be quiet and not express myself even though I noticed creativity flowing through my grandmothers fingers in the form of quilt-making.

I find my voice when I create art through the meditative state of linking one ring at a time. When knitted with small rings of thin metal wire, this masculine, war-like material becomes extremely soft and flowing. The ritual of laying the transparent veil of chain mail on a woman invokes a sense of security and a feeling of empowerment.

My creations are a merging of art and history in the intimate setting of a woman's body.
