About The Artist

Santa Fe, NM
Jewelry - Metal

Through experimentation we have created a unique and innovative carving techniques using highly modified tools; our chisels, bits and engravers are specifically created for textured and dramatic effects. We use unusual joining techniques like swallowtail and ball pivots, allowing full movement. While the pieces are meticulously crafted, it is the story that drives the creation: an adventure in history, discovery and transformation, from the Bronze Age to the present and onward to the unknown.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

Jewelry is not only a universal art form but the oldest one, predating cave paintings by thousands of years. Our work is not solely decorative, it is an expressive that conveys a message. The content can be emotional, historical, nostalgic, a story, a lesson or perhaps include social communication. Art jewelry does not depend on form or function but on content, which gives us the freedom to push our skill sets to the limits while exploring who we are and why we are here.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

We employ old world techniques, originating from the part of the world were we track our heritage, namely the middle east. We love combining these traditional techniques with non traditional methods; just as we like combining diamonds with edgier materials. Since we work on each and every piece together we try to encourage each other to seek new heights. This is the push and pull that makes our work unique and different. Not always an easy dance but the outcomes are original and breathtaking.
