Best Jewelry Artist 

Peggy Skemp

Jewelry inspired by fungi, lungs, and tentacles sounds like it could be a hot seller in a goth store, but designer Peggy Skemp isn't trying to gross you out. Having grown up in a family of environmentalists, biologists, and doctors, she's genuinely excited by the natural sciences. A talented metalsmith, Skemp finds beauty in sinew and suction cups, crafting pendants depicting bits of muscle tissue and sterling silver rings approximating tubular fungi clustered in a meandering row. Other creations include tentacle rings with tiny diamonds set in the suckers and the popular anatomical heart pendant—cool jewelry for your inner science nerd.
