Metals are a timeless staple among jewelers for a reason: they possess a unique depth and versatility that melds the functional with the sculptural. Our selection of artists in this season’s Metals Showcase take inspiration from a variety of places, people, experiences, and aesthetic notions to fashion metals-based jewelry. Whether incorporating industrial artifacts, exploring sensual interpretations of rougher elements or contextualizing local histories, the artists featured in this display demonstrate the ever-growing scope of how (and why) metals adorn the body. Read below for each artist’s take on their own metals practice.
