Eva Martin. Storyteller

The UK artist Eva Martin creates miniature worlds in her jewelry that invite exploration, she hides little secrets in her pieces. “This discovery makes you smile,” Eva says on her website. “There’s a child-like delight in finding something you know others haven’t noticed or will never know about.”

She trained to be a jeweler at North Bennet Street School in Boston Massachusetts, a school acclaimed for traditional craftsmanship. I have recently taken a post as a part-time instructor at the school and am thoroughly enjoying teaching there.

Eva presently lives in Boston, MA, though I take commissions from all over the world. She gets to know her clients very well through emails and conversations. And she gets to the heart of their stories to design pieces that will come to life with such deliberate meaning. “I find this storytelling one of the most exciting and satisfying parts my job,” she says. “It makes each piece unique and very meaningful to the recipient”.
