Peggy Foy is a Seattle metalsmith and enamelist. Her work features layered colors and textures of metal, usually forged and fabricated from raw sheet and wire. She loves making objects that look like artifacts or talismans with some secret, hidden meaning; some pieces also include working mechanisms. The art movement known as Art Nouveau is a strong influence as swirling, graceful lines play a notable part in her work.
Peggy holds a BFA in Jewelry and Metalwork from The University of Georgia. She teaches jewelry classes at Pratt Fine Art Center and Tacoma Metal Art Center as well as private lessons from her jewelry studio in historic Pioneer Square in Seattle, Washington. She sells her work in studio sales and through ArcanaMetalwork.Etsy.com.
