Ruby Maly is an artist living in Portland, Oregon. She works in printmaking, sculpture, and has dabbled in animation, but her passion has always been jewelry and metals. She began making jewelry around age 6 or 7, when good-old sibling rivalry--in the form of her brother making earrings for their mom--brought her into the world of beads and wire.  Since then she has greatly refined her motor skills and developed a taste for clean lines and organic forms.

Those humble beads and wire and her love of sculpture stay close to the heart of Ruby's work. An elegantly shaped piece of wire and perhaps a beautiful stone are enough to make a composition that is stronger for its simplicity.
