Born into a creative family, Liz Ryan pursued fine art studies at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston where she discovered her passion for metalsmithing. In 2007, the artist started her own business called Looka Jewelry. Today, Liz creates her artistic visions at her studio in Worcester, MA. Liz maintains several different collections showcasing her diversity as an artist. She uses copper, brass, and silver to create a whimsical and edgier collection that features silhouettes of ants, flies, dragonflies and bees. Each insect is hand-cut out of metal and crafted into three-dimensional hollow pieces. Liz also creates another “sweeter” collection with hearts and envelopes as the design element.
