Altadena jewelry maker Ellen Dinerman will be part of Sunday’s Art on Palm
showcase, featuring ceramics, glass, textiles, painting, collage, woodworking, photography and jewelry by 30 local artists and designers.
Dinerman’s work has roots in nature: Many of her pieces are inspired by the natural world, refashioned in silver or brass and accented by stones and beads.
She told Michelle Mills
of the Star-News: “Sometimes I see something and I think, ‘What a fabulous shape!’ and I can see how it would be an interesting shape translated into another material. Then I take the actual seed and make a mold of it.”
Dinerman is also a featured jewelry designer for the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, where her organic-inspired designs feel, well, natural.
