Evelyn Tillett

“Tillett” an Outer Banks name that dates back into the 1700’s

I come from a history of accomplished artist and craftsman – from grandfathers who designed and built wooden sailing ships to my father who carved decoys out of shipwreck lumber harvested from our coast.

Where they chose to work with wood, I have chosen to create in metal.

Each finished piece of jewelry began as an idea carefully drawn into my sketchbook – every element and shape of the design was worked and reworked until the pieces were in harmony.

Next I gathered the raw materials and sawed, filed, soldered, and sanded – coaxing the

metal until it took form.

I love the creative process

The feel of the metal as it moves through my hands.

The satisfaction of watching as it becomes my design


A wearable piece of art.
