Having grown up under the open skies of rural Indiana, surrounded by animals and agriculture, Heather Guidero discovered early on a love for drawing and a fascination with jewelry.
Formally trained at RISD, Heather worked as a goldsmith for renowned jewelry company Reinstein/Ross in New York before returning to Providence, Rhode Island, where she had attended RISD, to launch her namesake collection in 2005.
Heather’s jewelry consists of a series of simple geometric shapes. She works with these shapes to explore volume, movement, and pattern. Each piece as it is worn produces the gentle sound of metal rings and discs as the wearer goes about her daily routine. In this way, each piece is transformed into a personal, interactive sculpture.
“Settling in at my bench . . . there’s something comforting about the feel of my favorite tools in hand and being able to turn a sheet of metal or length of wire into a piece of jewelry that will be treasured and worn on a regular basis.”
Every piece in Heather’s collection is constructed and finished by hand in her Providence studio.
