NVSME Give Back!

GIVING BACK THE HONOR TO THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE US.

In light of Black Lives Matter, we always give back the honor and support now and always to one of the pioneering black jewelry designers.
"Art Smith".
 
Modernist jewelry designer Art Smith was one of the major 20th-century jewelry artists. And, Waterfall says, “He’s also one of few whose [all-metal] work can sit alongside the gem-encrusted pieces I sell.”
Smith was born to Jamaican parents in Cuba in 1917, but his family settled in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1920. He received a scholarship to Cooper Union, where he was one of only a handful of Black students. After college, he also took a night course in jewelry making at New York University, and around that time he struck up a friendship with Winifred Mason Chenet (more on Mason Chenet, below), who became his mentor.

We recognize, honor and acknowledge the contributions and achievements of those who went before us.

Smith's jewelry has been described as:

Inspired by surrealism, biomorphism, and primitivism ... dynamic in its size and form

Many of his pieces were designed to be worn by avant-garde dancers, which influenced his style. The pieces were often large. Of his own work, he said:

A piece of jewelry is in a sense an object that is not complete in itself. Jewelry is a ‘what is it?’ until you relate it to the body. The body is a component in design just as air and space are. Like line, form, and color, the body is a material to work with. It is one of the basic inspirations in creating form.
