Artists & Makers

Jewelry

Jewelry is a small art form with big significance. Whether it is a wedding ring symbolizing love, a figurative design representing something meaningful to the wearer, or a unique gem which declares “I am one of a kind,” jewelry expresses our loves and our sense of self. It often commemorates significant moments in our lives, and treasured pieces of jewelry are handed down through generations. Techniques for making jewelry vary from the complex to the simple. Traditional fabrication methods include sawing, forming & soldering sheets of metal or sculpting from a block of wax. At its highest level, jewelry art requires tremendous technical skill as well as thoughtful design. From Kirk Milette’s rare abalone pearls in whimsical designs to Marita Holton’s delightful crowns, jewelers at the Sawdust offer adornments for all.

Did You Know?

When a jeweler joins two pieces of precious metal by solder, they use a small but very hot flame. The two pieces of metal have to be perfectly aligned, with no gaps. The temperature must reach approximately 1,200 °F for silver, and roughly 1,500 °F for gold. At precisely the right temperature, the solder melts and literally flows into the adjacent metal forming a strong, permanent bond. The challenge is apply just enough heat to cause the solder to flow, but not enough to melt the artwork that the jeweler has painstakingly formed.
