Intro
A celebration of the exquisitely crafted jewelry of Robert Baines, a master goldsmith and leading archaeometallurgist. By using ancient techniques in playful new ways, and combining precious metals with contemporary materials, Baines excavates the mythology of present-day culture and crafts objects that push the boundaries of what wearable art can be.
