metal masters

Today the Handmade Division is talking about the artists we would most like to study with.

I love mid-century modernist jewelry and have collected it for years. In fact I sell it on my web site (which desperately needs updating). There were many studio jeweler's working from the 50s-70s that I would love a chance to work with. Here are but a few, some of the images are from my personal collection and some are pieces I have sold.

Sigi Pineda

Ronald Hayes Pearson

Phyllis Jacobs

Merle Boyer

Frank Patania, Sr.

Ed Weiner

Henry Steig

Los Castillo

There are so many other talented artists I could list, including some great Scandinavian studio jewelers. To read more on modernist silver visit Modern Silver Magazine. Please visit these team members to read about who they would like to study with:
