Ginny Rush is the owner and designer for Liberatus Jewelry. She received her BFA in Craft & Material Studies with a concentration in Metals at Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Art. Ginny is currently living and making in Richmond, VA. Her love of jewelry stemmed from loving to work with her hands. She always connected with a three-dimensional approach to creating. For her, adorning the body with those creations engages the wearer and the pieces in a way no other art format can.
"I love my art because it isn’t for walls. These pieces of me are made for others. For us—you and I both. I’m in the file scratches on the edges, in the fingerprints I leave when I take it from my bench. It’s for you to wear down, to ding and scratch and make your own as it molds to your body and becomes a part of who you are just as a tattered old swing becomes part of its tree."
