Luce Artist Biography

James Meyer created sculptures and drawings before turning to jewelry as his primary medium in 1969. Finding himself between jobs, the artist forged some jewelry for his wife and friends as Christmas presents, and the praise he received encouraged him to start a new career. Inspired by nature, fantasy, and other works of art, Meyer creates jewelry from precious metals that “embody the quality of enduring beauty, especially in contrast to our own rather tenuous and impermanent life on Earth.”
