Nadine Kariya

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art hosts a retrospective on four decades of Northwest jeweler Nadine Kariya’s beautifully crafted work.

 
Noteworthy too is Kariya’s expertise in every technical aspect of jewelrymaking, from forging, fabrication and welding, to engraving and the alchemy involved in making cloisonné and alloys.
