Lisa Gent Handcrafted Jewelry

 For over 25 years I have made my home in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I am so fortunate to live in such a special place where inspiration can be found all around. The natural beauty that surrounds me is inspiration not only to my work but my being as well. I love color and it plays an integral role in my work. Whether it is the full green leaves of the trees against a vivid blue summer sky or the setting winter sun, with its’ violets and blues against the bare black winter branches, or maybe the crashing waves and the smell of the ocean. It all feeds into who I am and what inspires me to create. My jewelry is handcrafted. Created by combining metalwork, sterling silver, fine silver and gold, precious &; semi-precious stones, beads and pearls. Much of my work has a very organic feel stemming from my deep connection to the natural world. The use of exciting color combinations in addition to interesting patterns and textures keeps my work fresh and unique. I began making jewelry at a young age. Over the years, my skills have grown and my style has evolved. I am primarily self-taught though I regularly look for opportunities to grow professionally and continue to refine my own skills. I strive to create pieces that are simple yet intriguing to look at and that will stand the test of time. Jewelry is an extended expression of who we are and what we feel. I want the wearer of my jewelry to feel empowered and more importantly happy about who they are and inspired in whatever direction their own path leads.
