About the Artist
Artist Statement

Trey Geary’s designs are personally hand crafted, organic, art jewelry. He creates miniaturewearable sculptures of wood, stone and metal. Each piece possesses a unique elementalresonance and intrinsic beauty.

These pieces are my miniature meditations on the world at large.

I create sculptures using parts of nature both organic and fundamental. They resonate with the spark of spirit, the energy we all conduct, for our brief time. Most of the wondrous wood I use comes from a forested bluff in Monteagle, Tennessee.  I  meld the wood with intricate and colorful stones from around the world and with metals that my grandfather collected many years ago.  My zen is creating beautiful and meaningful pieces of art  jewelry that inspire wonder and connect us all.

I was lucky enough to be raised in an adventurous family who loved to hike, camp, and explore. Collecting pocketfuls of hickory nuts, rocks, acorns, fossils, or any odd nuggets of wooden wonder, I have always been spellbound by the intrinsic beauty found within the minutiae of nature. Wood grains that show struggle and healing. Stones with colors and patterns formed by heat, compression and time. The magical energy and glinting spirit of conductive metals. Beginning as a sculptor, and now as a jewelry artist, I have created ways to use all of these elements in together in my own organic palette that resonates from a distance and becomes even more magical on closer inspection. I am a Williamson County native and current resident, though most of my favorite wood comes from expeditions in Monteagle, Tennessee. I meld the wood with intricate and colorful stones from around the world and with metals that my grandfather collected years ago. My zen is creating beautiful & meaningful pieces of art jewelry that make people happy and connect us all.
