RISD Alum Thea Izzi
Degree Jewelry + Metalsmithing
Year 1991

Taking inspiration from her own creative process of “exploring variations on a theme,” Oakland, CA artist Thea Izzi brings geometric and organic shapes together in handcrafted jewelry that emphasizes “form, space and movement.” The uncomplicated lines and curves of her work allow the unique properties of the materials to come through, particularly the luminescence of gold or silver reflecting itself. Her recent work uses both metals together to draw attention to the contrasts of interior/exterior and negative/positive space. Izzi’s jewelry can be found in galleries across the country and in Australia, and has been featured in WHERE and American Style magazines.
