Elana Sigal is a Vancouver based jewelry designer, textile artist and photographer. Her designs strive to inspire those who appreciate style, design, quality and uniqueness. Her collection features one-of-a-kind pieces as well as unusual limited edition designs. Elana's pieces showcase beautiful faceted semi-precious stones contrasted with rough hewn ethnic beads and both raw and precious metals. Her designs are playfully sophisticated ranging from classic elegance to fun and trendy.
Every piece of jewelry is able to be worn for any occasion, allowing not only an all-in-one aesthetic, but also numerous methods of wearability.
Her felt work displays an original, unique interpretation of fibre art. Her work is very organic in nature and embodies her love of colour, figure, line, texture and abstract form. She expresses herself through her art in a casual and whimsical manner bringing the viewer a sense of ease, contentment and joy. Her inspiration comes from the historic and tribal process of felt making as well as from African art, Matisse, Klee. Marrying her modern sensibility with the ancient form of felt making she creates art pieces which connect us with the natural world.
Felt is an ideal medium for softening, adding warmth and texture while acting as a sound buffer in residential , commercial, spiritual and corporate settings. Pieces can be designed in any size and thickness depending on the site requirements.
Elana has been working with photography recently and is producing colorful, multilayered compositions printed on metal, glass, wood, paper and has extended her line to include prints, printed scarves, tote bags and cushions.
