"I'm just glad I own four original pieces of Geno's amazing work. Luckily, I acquired them early in his career. I am quite sure I can't afford them now at Smithsonian prices.
I'm enjoying your work very much! I like making stands for my work sometimes too - it really creates a special space for the object. Your's is very clean and minimal, but very efficient and beautiful. Love them!

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.
The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists.

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
