Kayla Milaine studied 'Textile Techniques in Metal' with Arline Fisch at San Diego State University in 1985 while pursuing an MFA in Costume Design. She was hooked by this marriage of metals and textiles and has been crocheting and weaving metal wire ever since.
Bracelets, earrings and necklaces can be made of 14K gold-filled, sterling and fine silver, copper, brass, steel, niobium and a huge array of color-coated copper wires. The use of beads or pearls is an important design element, adding color, texture and light.
Kayla’s jewelry ranges from simple to wildly dramatic, from period styles such as Victorian, Renaissance and Gothic, to organic floral forms.
