Statement
Biography

My work is a bold statement — contemporary, yet purposeful. My jewelry line, “Powerful in Pink,” includes pieces that are rugged and distressed, contrasted against fine jewelry techniques. When cutting my own stones, I tend to intentionally leave parts of the stone raw, which highlights more polished areas. I primarily work in sterling silver and base metals, precious and semi-precious stones, with non-traditional materials such as concrete and wood.
These wearable pieces hold an aesthetic that is uniquely divergent from the traditional and the anticipated. My intention is to make this jewelry accessible to everyone (not just the typical fine jewelry “demographic”), and especially to the LGBTQIA+ community. By defying gender norms and expectations, PiP deconstructs the gender binary found in conventional jewelry.

Tracey Carswell (She/They) is a queer non-binary Miami-based artist who makes jewelry out of metal, stones and reclaimed materials. A lifelong learner, Tracey graduated from the Miami International University of Art and Design with an A.A. in Fashion Accessory Design in 2009.
Since then she has studied with many teachers in and out of Miami learning metalsmithing, stone setting, and stone cutting. Tracey now gets to share her love of art and jewelry by teaching curious artists how to bend metal, play with fire, and build tiny homes for beautiful stones. She is the Founder of the Miami chapter of the Women’s Jewelry Association, where she empowers women and femme / GNC leadership in the jewelry and watch industries.
