Alicia Goodwin is a Chicago based jeweler who specializes in creating textures loosely based on the randomness of nature. Her work incorporates simple shapes with deep patterns in metal, creating dimensional and functional art. The work is also inspired by Meso American gold adornment as well as mourning jewelry of the Victorian era. Her love of craft knows no bounds and can be seen in her detailed, rich work. Alicia works full time as a jeweler, selling online via her webshop, Lingua Nigra, as well as to major retailers and galleries around the world, including the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum of Modern Art.
