Wearable Art Jewelry, Inspiring Jewelry Artists
Inspiring Jewelry Artists and Wearable Art
A collection of my favorite jewelry artists and inspiring wearable art jewelry.
I was so lucky to have the master of found object art jewelry, Ron Ho, as my high school teacher years ago in Bellevue, Wa. He is a challenging teacher; taught me about "cliches" in art, the beauty of asymmetry and to appreciate found objects and ethnic jewelry.
His work is influenced by his Chinese heritage, upbringing in Hawaii, his extensive world travels and his jewelry teacher Ramona Solberg.

My Art Jewelry, Repurposed Jewelry Today - Upcycled Jewelry on Etsy
My current jewelry fits somewhere between art jewelry add everyday costume jewelry. I love the challenge of taking a funky old vintage earring or brooch and creating something that is new, stylish and easy to wear today.
