WHAT IS FLYING METAL JEWELRY?
Handcrafted, original jewelry designed and forged by Arita, B. Each of the eclectically unique pieces are made by hand for the individual who loves to make a statement.
Arita, B. (Brittany Arita Cota) is a flight attendant extraordinaire by day, and metalsmith at heart.
She began making jewelry in 2005 while attending San Diego State University and instantly fell in love with metal. She graduated with only two metalsmithing classes under her belt, but continued practicing her skills whenever access to a metals studio was available.
In 2013, Arita, B. began working out of her current art studio in the Barrio Logan Arts District in San Diego, and thus Flying Metal Jewelry was born! Not only is Flying Metal Jewelry a means to a creative outlet, but it provides the artist with the ability to share a piece of herself with every wearer. Each unique piece of jewelry is created by hand using saws, hammers, torches and a whole lot of love.
