Irene Storch jewelry making evolved from her interest and background in fine arts (painting, fiber-sculpture, mixed media, etc.). Irene strives to create original, inventive pieces of jewelry while continuously exploring the use of a variety of materials. Her emphasis is on using recycled materials, stainless steel screens, and industrial and electronic parts. All elements are attached to each other by wire. The wire is therefore both functional and an element of design. Her work is available at select galleries and markets in the Bay Area.
