A former petroleum engineer, Theresa Killgore designs jewelry that stands out.

“I’ve used garnets, sapphires, and blue topaz, as well as a piece of bark mulch, a cookie cutter, and a lip-gloss container,” the artist said. “I don’t know how to do small. Everything is a statement piece.”

She wakes up most mornings with one or two new designs in her head.

“My brain sees the finished piece, then I have to backward ‘engineer’ to step one to see how it’s put together,” Killgore explained. “For me designing is quick and easy; it’s the fabrication of the work that may take a few weeks to complete.”

With such attention to detail, Killgore puts out no more than 20 pieces a year. She is excited to showcase her latest offerings at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art in a trunk show from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5.

“I really enjoy working with the people at BIMA,” she said. “It feels like home to me.”
