Some of my Jewelry Heroes

Do you ever look at an artist’s work and wonder who inspires them?  Sometimes it’s easy to see their influences and other times it’s harder to see where their style and ideas come from.  Today I leave you with a list (in no particular order) of some of my favorite jewelers and metalsmiths.

  • Albert Paley (you saw that one coming, didn’t you?)
  • David Huang
  • Mary Lee Hu
  • Arline Fisch
  • Ron Ho
  • Art Smith
  • Alexander Calder
  • Andy Cooperman

There are others, but these are the ones who popped into my head immediately.  If you are familiar with any of them, why don’t you let me know if you can see their influence on my work.  Also, let us know who inspires you.
