Una Barrett

Eugene, OR | Exhibiting Since 2010

Una Barrett is a jewelry artist whose work explores an intimate attunement to nature through the lenses of geology, paleontology, botany, and geometry. Born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains of Northeastern Tennessee, Una cultivated an early relationship with one of the most biodiverse and ancient mountain ranges of the world. This reverence of the natural world continues to inform the jewelry she creates. In small delicate forms hand fabricated from sterling silver, gold, and bronze, she crafts talismans with the intent to bring awareness to our inevitable and reciprocal relationship with the world around us. She is a full time studio artist in Eugene, Oregon.
