I work with enamel and metal to create jewelry that celebrates the diversity of insects and reflect upon our competing aversion and allure to them.
Charity Hall is an enamelist and metalsmith in Blacksburg, VA. Using metal, enamel, found objects and gemstones, she creates a diverse array of biologically inspired jewelry. A former botanist, Hall is interested in the intricate relationships between art and science. She completed her MFA in Metal Design at East Carolina University in 2008 and taught Metalworking and Design at Pima Community College for five years. In 2013, she moved to Blacksburg, VA to begin a full time studio practice. The allure of science remains strong, influencing every piece she creates, and she still roams through forests and mountains, collecting specimens for natural history museums. Her work appears in Behind the Brooch, Humor in Craft, New Rings: 500 Designs from Around the World, and 500 Enameled Objects, and she was a contributing author for Art Jewelry Magazine. Her work has been exhibited in a variety of juried and solo exhibitions. She teaches jewelry and enameling workshops at the Penland School of Crafts, JOhn Campbell Folk School, Idyllwild Arts Academy, the Center for Enamel Art, and many other universities and guilds around the United States.
