Armed with a degree in anthropology and art, Judy Perlman combines tribal motifs along with Japanese textile designs to create the remarkable sterling silver jewelry that can be found today at Earthenworks Gallery. "How do I work?" says Judy. "I surround myself with interesting materials. I'll go on a shopping spree and become seduced by a new gem or stone. When I get home, I realize that I have no vision for it. I often live with these things for months if not years before I realize what it needs to be." Perlman appreciates art and design and hopes her work stands up to that standard. It does.
