Copper and Amber Hoops
Lena Grace Adams is an artist from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Her active childhood - full of nature and travel - and her educational endeavors - in both a traditional collegiate and folk school setting - have informed her art to this day. It was at John C. Campbell Folk School when Lena began her work in metals. She was immediately drawn to the soldering process, the use of brass and copper, and incorporating natural elements into her art. After having a daughter in 2021, Lena decided to prioritize her jewelry making as a way to explore her biggest passions simultaneously: motherhood and artistic expression. Lena currently resides in Bradenton, Florida.
