Luce Artist Biography

Jaclyn Davidson incorporates stories from other cultures and times into her jewelry. Her work encompasses Japanese, Native American, African, and Northern European folktales. More recently, Davidson’s pieces have dealt with the Holocaust. These origins in different periods of human history give her works “a life of their own apart from their role as wearable objects.”
