Faith Revels works under the studio name Peace of Nature, creating custom handmade jewelry and wall-hanging art that utilizes natural materials. The artist’s necklaces, earrings, and other jewelry pieces combine rich neutral colours with bright jewel tones for an effect that’s both subtle and striking.
I like the way the artist combines various materials in each piece -- many of Faith’s jewelry pieces feature coloured glass beads, and the contrast between the weathered glass and elements of leather, wood, and stone creates a kind of microcosmic aesthetic that hearkens to beaches and forests.
Faith’s foray into hanging art takes advantage of the weight and presence of colourful stones and crystals. There’s a sense of dynamism in this work as the viewer’s eye is drawn from the higher focal point and downward, with bright, jewel-tone accents leading the way.
