**** Chrystie Cappelli
In 1998 Cheystie received her BFA in Sculpture from CCA(C). Enamored with the ancient techniques taught in the Textile department. It was then she began to develop her unique finely woven and patina metal. Continuing to weave, but still eager to learn how to build, Cappelli found a job as a metal fabricator at a custom architectural metal shop in Oakland. Drawn to the mystery and worn soul of old objects, Cappelli began to appropriate treasure-hunted pieces, in combination with her woven patina metal, and began making jewelry, accessories, and wearable art. Not limited to the body, she also produces decorative and conceptual fine art and furniture.
