Nicolette Absil received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Rowan University. She is a full time studio jeweler and exhibits her work nationally at fine craft shows and galleries. Nicolette’s work has been featured in publications such as Art Jewelry Magazine and the Philadelphia Inquirer. She recently completed a residency at Touchstone Center for Crafts in 2014. Nicolette has been named one of the top finalists for the Halstead Grant, a finalist for the Saul Bell Award in the Enamel category, and is a juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen.  Her work focuses on process and using enameling, the ancient art of fusing glass to metal, in a more contemporary manner. Nature serving as her inspiration, Nicolette illustrates serene and delicate imagery that she fuses into enamel and then sets the work into hand fabricated settings. Recently, she has been working with multiples and repeating forms, as well as exploring the life cycles of flowers, capturing different stages of their existence. All of Nicolettes work is handmade by her, in her studio.
