Luce Artist Biography

Ivy Ross was one of the first jewelers to use titanium, tantalum, and niobium, metals that reveal a spectrum of colors when they are charged with electricity. Her interest in designing for different media has led Ross to produce jewelry, clothing, accessories, and even toys for notable American fashion houses and retail chains.
