Widely admired in the field of fine art jewelry, Ramona Solberg brings together cultural artifacts that are both exotic and familiar. With her meticulous sense of composition, Solberg turns buttons, calipers, beads, pebbles, and her trademark dominos into boldly-scaled works of wearable art. Thirty-two of her necklaces are illustrated in color in Findings, comprehensively gathered for the first time. Vicki Halper sets Solberg's work in the context of her life as an artist, teacher, and traveler, and explores the creative links between Solberg and her students and fellow jewelers. She chronicles Solberg's career from her student days, through her tenure as professor at the University of Washington, to her active and productive recent years, and explores the community of Pacific Northwest artists with whom she is associated: Laurie Hall, Ron Ho, Kiff Slemmons, and Nancy Worden.

Ramona Solberg is a person who communicates warmth and enthusiasm, whether concerning her work, her friends and colleagues, her teaching or her love of travel. Although she would acknowledge that she, like other academic artists, has been fortunate, to create work without confronting the artistic compromises caused by the marketplace, Solberg’s success derives from an inner strength that transcends academia.

Ramona Solberg (1921–2005) created eccentric yet familiar jewelry using found objects; she was an influential teacher at the University of Washington School of Art and often referred to as the "grandmother of Northwest found-art jewelry". She was an art instructor in and around Seattle for three decades as well as a prolific jewelry artist. Ramona Lorraine Solberg was born 10 May 1921, in Watertown, South Dakota, but her family relocated to Seattle, Washington before Solberg's second birthday

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.

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.

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.
