The Cirroteuthid octopus with billowing arms was caught on camera by researchers from the vessel E/V Nautilus.
The Princeton Museum store described Nancy's work as, "holding a deep connection to ancient techniques in jewelry production."
Her new Intaglio collection is an Editor's Pick for new graduates because of the symbols of wisdom and healing portrayed in her Owl and Apollo rings respectively. Intaglio is a manufacturing style as old as Mesopotamia where vitreous glass pastes are molded into cameos or intaglios. Nancy's design aesthetic gracefully melds ancient jewelry techniques with new and fresh designs.
To see Nancy perform ancient jewelry techniques please view her video at Artisans at the Princeton Museum Store.
