Allison Read Smith was born and raised in memphis, tennessee where her upbringing was a creative and curious environment. Storytelling and a strong sense of humor allowed for long contemplations of elements of life. In her jewelry collection, Allison uses found objects and materials to create a unique and imaginary world where the objects that surround us take on a new and greater significance. Both naive and poignant, these odd scaled objects form a witty and unsettling group, adding up to a larger narrative. Every wearable jewelry is sculpted by hand as a unique piece. While pertaining to the same series, no two pieces are the same: these symbolic objects are each individually significant.
