Hannah Pazderka

Hannah owns Art of Gems, which specializes in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) of fine jewelry. She describes her work as Art Nouveau with a modern twist: bringing the beauty of nature to her customers through jewelry.

Her work features long, sweeping lines, delicate patterns, and a very clean aesthetic. Each piece is designed as an individual work of art. Per  Hannah, "I aim to capture the tranquility and grandeur of nature in metals and precious gems."

Hannah works with all ages and tastes, creating everything from a funky panda pendant, to wedding rings, to tattoos in metal.

Reformed Research Scientist

"Don't Wait for Some Day"

Hannah's story, as told by Hannah:
"I come by the concept of reinventing yourself honestly. I was in my late 30s, and already becoming established in my career as a research scientist, when my mom passed away. Her death was very sudden and traumatic, and in the weeks and months that followed I spent many hours re-evaluating the path I was on, and the costs associated with it. I recall clearly seeing a note my mom had written my daughter about how much she enjoyed her school play, and how she was looking forward to their baking Christmas cookies together. I wasn’t part of any of it. I was completely disconnected; worse, I had no idea. I was so worried about navigating the daily stresses, I had stopped listening to the little voice inside myself. I had become inauthentic.

"It hit me then that, for years, I had really just been going through the motions. Always thinking about the next move — the next grant, the next study, the next promotion… I had stopped really deciding what to do with my life and was basically just doing what I was supposed to do. So when my mom’s stroke happened, it stopped me dead in my tracks. I asked myself, If I could do anything — be anything — in the world, what would it be?

"And I knew. Without a doubt, I knew. My love for art and my passion for creating beautiful things rushed to the fore. I wanted to create fine jewelry."
