When Pat Bolgar begins to create a new piece of jewelry, she draws upon her extensive education and her rural surroundings. Having studied Drawing, Painting, Printmaking and Fashion Design,* she is in an excellent position to reference classical and contemporary art and design. But perhaps an even more influential factor is the botanical landscape in which she lives. It would be hard to imagine a Pat Bolgar piece that didn’t directly or indirectly reference nature’s beauty and design. “Plants and flowers of all sorts find a place in my studio and help to inspire me,” she says. “Living in a rural area, I am surrounded with nature’s foliage, giving me quiet solitude for joyful creativity.”
