Though Solberg made some jewelry in her studies, she did not create her first piece of jewelry using beads and found objects until 1956, while at Central Washington State College. Her jewelry was large, rather than typical delicate, precious jewelry  . a b c d Hackett, Regina (June 15, 2005). Ramona Solberg, 1921–2005: The grandmother of Northwest found-art jewelry".

Ramona Solberg liked a fast-paced mystery novel, a good martini, the company of friends and the riches of the world's diverse material cultures. Solberg died of congestive heart failure at the age of 84 but was still working last week, said her dealer, Karen Lorene of Facere Jewelry Art Gallery. Curator and writer Vicki Halper, who wrote the 2001 definitive book on Solberg's work, "Findings: The Jewelry of Ramona Solberg," said yesterday that the briefest synopsis of the artist's life might read, "Born in South Dakota; visited India 15 times; enjoys life; makes necklaces.

Curator and writer Vicki Halper, who wrote the definitive book on Solberg’s work in 2001, Findings: The Jewelry of Ramona Solberg, said that the briefest synopsis of the artist’s life might read: Born in South Dakota; visited India 15 times; enjoys life; makes necklaces. Ramona (1921-2005) was a remarkable woman. She is considered the grandmother of Northwest found-art jewelry. She was a professor at the University of Washington and Central Washington State College (now Central Washington University). She mentored and inspired a generation of jewelry artists, including myself.

Published in conjunction with an exhibit at the Bank of America Gallery, Seattle, Washington, and scheduled to travel during 2001 and 2002. Thirty-one color plates are supported by curator Halper's essay describing the life and creative development of Solberg, an octogenarian whose inimitable jewelry incorporates the vitality of found object assemblage with superb intelligence and humor, and impeccable design.

  • I loved this book as it was hard to find. She is dead but her jewelry lives on and it is a worthwhile book to own for inspiration.

  • Great book, great jewelry, excellent condition!!!!

  • Great book!

  • My introduction to found art jewelry was seeing Ramona's book in a bookstore. The cover piece was so intriguing. I loved that necklace. It's one of my favorites. I'd been making my own jewelry for quite a few years, but I'd never seen anything like her work. I had to explore the book. I decided to buy it within a few minutes of scanning the pages.

    I love learning to look at everything around me in a different way and this book opened up a whole new jewelry dimension for me. Found art jewelry has amazing potential.

    And while Ramona may have had to travel in her day to see the wonderfully unique items she included in her artwork, thank goodness there are sites like eBay today. So I can do Solberg-inspired pieces without having to travel the globe.

    I want easy access to it so it's one of the few books I keep by my bedside. Every so often I will treat myself by perusing her book for some inspiration.

  • To Ramona, a domino is not merely a game piece. A domino can join other found objects in a necklace. This catalogue of 32 of Ramona's necklaces, appearing in a Bank of American gallery presentation from 18 November to 14 December 2001, are just plain fun. Of the 32 pieces, my favorite is an eye-catching necklace including cast silver, black and yellow African millefiore, and bauxite beads -- a stunner!

  • This beautiful book tells the story of an amazing jewelry maker. Gorgeous photos show off her work, which incorporates found objects, fabrication, beads, and natural materials in imaginative, exciting ways. Truly inspiring work that transforms the ordinary into unnique art.
