Luce Artist Biography

Harold O’Connor did not pursue jewelry making until his senior year of college when he took a course in metalwork and faced the challenge of transforming ideas into physical form. His undergraduate interest in anthropology has remained strong, however, and his art allows O’Connor to meditate on human interactions. O’Connor’s later training in Denmark and Germany has given him a technical virtuosity to match his interests. The artist works thematically, creating narrative jewelry that often reflects upon myths, cultural rites, and life in the last half of the twentieth century.
