Dorothy Northern’s Work 

About Dorothy Northern

Dorothy Northern is a Memphis artist who creates one-of-a-kind silver jewelry pieces. They are all art to wear!

After 23 years of teaching Art in Memphis, Dorothy opted to turn her focus on creating jewelry full time. In other word, living the dream!

Dorothy first trained as a printmaker with a focus on intaglio. She loved etching and engraving metal plates. Followed by seeing the ink pressed down into incised textures. This is how she first fell in love with moving metal. Since childhood, Dorothy has made jewelry. Her first jewelry showcased found objects and plants. Now, precious metals, gemstones and vintage finds are her focus.

Travel fuels her quest to learn from other jewelers. Most Thursdays you can find Dorothy at the gallery. Drop by and learn more about her fine art jewelry.

Last year, Dorothy chatted with WKNOFM’s Kacky Walton. Listen time approximately 21 minutes.
