I work primarily with fine silver and fused and/or flameworked glass. My jewelry relates deeply to natural forms, incorporating actual textures from leaves, shells, etc. to enhance my pieces, many of which also reflect my faith. I also use textures that I have developed myself to expand my designs. Besides a limited production line of earrings, I also work one-of-a-kind and in limited series.

|Carly Burke||Mountain Light Jewelry||Floyd|
I began my first jewelry business when I was 14. Following that early love, I studied Metal and Jewelry Design at Savannah College of Art and Design and have been evolving as a jewelry artist throughout my adult life. In 2010, I inherited a box of vintage feed sack fabric and began making jewelry out of it. That box of fabric, has led me to create, a mostly repurposed jewelry line. In my jewelry, you will find items such as; copper electrical wire, vintage clothing scraps, book pages and found objects. These one of kind items, help make my jewelry unique and are what makes my jewelry stand out from others.

I hand paint miniatures of birds, animals and plants on bone, antler and synthetic materials. These are then set in sterling silver as pins and pendants. Often the jewelry pieces open and have a Biblical inscription inside that relates to the subject of the piece. I hope to communicate the intricacies of Nature and the amazing way that each part is a reflection of the Creator.
