Welcome to Pat Daugherty Jewelry Design.
As an artist, I am passionate about creating pieces that are modern, wearable and distinctive, combining traditional and
innovative methods, with bold shapes, textures and color. Incorporating stones and pearls with silver, gold and reactive metals create my ever-evolving design direction, with inspiration from architectural and geometric shapes to rustic and organic. The interrelationship of the materials and techniques results in
a personal design choice for the individual to reflect their style through their accessories.
My college fascination with surface patterns and textures quickly translated to fabricated jewelry and metalwork. The Introduction to reactive metals niobium and titanium led to the exploration of integrating vibrant color to my designs, and from there, the ideas exploded. Now, experimentation with chemical patinas has added a painterly quality to many of my vessels
and containers, opening yet another door to merging color
and metal in a unique way.
Originally a high school teacher of fine arts and crafts, I
continue to instruct and inspire students in precious and
non precious metals in Manhattan.
My work has been exhibited in juried shows, and is on
display in various galleries in the US. Born in Ohio, I am presently residing and creating in New York City.
