Artist list

Harold O'Connor
O’Connor is a practicing metalsmith for nearly 60 years. The artist is celebrated internationally for how he unites American spirit and European metalsmithing tradition to create sophisticated works of wearable art.

Sculptural brooches, necklaces and rings own the majestic topographies of valleys and mountains. O’Connor captures the soul with organic, yet abstract expressions that reminisce on the sheer marvels of nature.

The artist pairs precious, silvery frames mostly with spectrolite; the gem’s fluctuating hue spurs one to embark across the spectrum of the rainbow. With every tilt in the light, one delights as its tone changes from purple and blue, to yellow, to a sea of green.
