Komala Rohde Jewelry

Komala Rohde

Local jewelry artist Komala Rohde draws on her two decades of experience teaching energy work in Europe and Japan to create inspired contemporary jewelry in precious metal clays (alone or in combination with gems, crystal, pearls and leather), chain mail and off-loom bead weaving.

A certified metal clay artist and teacher, Komala creates organic shapes from precious metal clays - a mix of metals, binder and water that are shaped and fired in a kiln to burn the binder and sinter the metals. Komala’s precious metal clay jewelry incorporates fine silver, silver alloy, gold alloy, copper, bronze, rose bronze and steel. She frequently uses special patinas and techniques such as Mokume Gane (a Japanese term meaning wood grain) to add interesting colors and textures to her unique shapes.

Komala also creates chain mail jewelry from anodized niobium (a strong, lightweight, hypoallergenic metal). Niobium is a reactive metal that oxidizes when immersed in a soap bath charged with an electric current. Amazing colors result from anodized niobium when light refracts through the oxide layer.

Komala is also an expert off-loom bead weaver who creates thoroughly modern jewelry of pearls, beads and gemstones.
