Luce Artist Biography

David LaPlantz went to school for metalworking, but did not begin making jewelry until a knee operation left him immobilized. Most of his pieces only take a few hours to complete, and are spontaneously designed. In the 1980s, LaPlantz taught thirty hours a week at Humboldt State University, and was still able to make hundreds of pieces of jewelry in a year.
