A true jeweler’s jeweler, Cynthia Eid uses a plethora of metalworking techniques to explore the fluidity with which metal can be moved, formed and joined.

Cynthia Eid’s sculptural jewelry and hollowware is primarily made in Argentium Sterling formed through the creative use of hammers and a hydraulic press.  Cynthia has been on the development teams of Bonny Doon and Knew Concepts, enjoying working together to make tools that help jewelers and metalsmiths.  Lee Marshall has dubbed Cynthia Eid “Godmother of the Knew Concept Saws” since it was her idea for him to produce these saws for jewelers.

Excited about working in sterling silver without the problem of firescale, Cynthia has been working with Argentium Silver since 1999.  After meeting Peter Johns  (the inventor of Argentium Silver) in 2003, Eid has participated in some of AS’s development.   Argentium International, Ltd recognizes her as a Pioneer.   Currently an independent metalsmith and educator, she teaches weekly classes at Metalwerx in Massachusetts, and workshops and short courses in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia.

Statement

The paradox that a “soft”, fluid-looking metal form has evolved from a flat, stiff rectangle fascinates me.  I am entranced by the metal’s progressive mutations — due to my force, determination, and tenacity — from a lifeless plane of metal toward an object of vibrancy, unity and fluidity.

The forms of the objects I make have their roots in my gardens, and my meanderings through the woods and along the water’s edge.  Rocks and shells from these walks fill the windowsills of my studio.

The allusions to nature are intentionally ambiguous, to encourage interactive response and contemplation by the viewer. I prefer to invent something that nature could have made, rather than copying nature’s designs. The similarities to nature occur through my subconscious sense of beauty and observations as I move the metal, rather than through conscious study or design. Experimentation, a sense of play, and serendipity play large roles in the designs of my work.
