Adriana DeCastro

About the Artist

Adriana, a versatile creator at heart, seamlessly intertwines the worlds of jewelry, metalsmithing, and knitting to craft a distinctive narrative in the realm of contemporary artistry. Armed with a BFA in Jewelry + Metalsmithing from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, she embarked on a creative journey that has continually evolved and flourished.

Her post-graduate initiation into the art scene saw her emerge as a dynamic force, showcasing her innovative works at tradeshows as an emerging artist. Adriana’s artistic journey became intertwined with her employment at the esteemed Fullercraft Museum, where she immersed herself in the rich tapestry of creative exploration while working in gift shop and admissions desk and eventually managing. This experience became a cherished chapter, infusing depth and inspiration into her evolving body of work.

Residing now in her own dedicated artist studio at the historic Ellis Estate in Scituate, MA, Adriana meticulously crafts each piece, infusing it with a touch of individuality that renders it one of a kind. Her artistic ethos is grounded in traditional techniques, yet her designs resonate with a modern aesthetic. Working predominantly with sterling silver, Adriana occasionally incorporates gemstones to accentuate the inherent beauty of her creations.

Adriana’s work is a testament to her passion for craftsmanship and a celebration of the unique intersections between tradition and modernity. With each piece, she weaves a narrative that speaks to the soul, inviting admirers to embark on a visual journey that transcends the ordinary and embraces the extraordinary.

The Creative Process

Within the realm of my artistic exploration lies a fusion of contemporary aesthetics, where organic and geometric forms intertwine, giving rise to textures with an abstract graphic allure. Rooted in inspiration drawn from the Scandinavian Modernist movement, my design approach reflects a harmonious blend of simplicity and functionality. Vintage knot books and diagrams serve as timeless muses, seamlessly woven into the fabric of my artistic practice. Each creation is a dance of kinetic concepts, a deliberate exploration of how objects move through space, breathing life into the very essence of my work.
