John Iversen moved to New York after studying metalsmithing in Germany and Canada. Unable to find a high-end studio to work for, he designed wedding rings until he decided to open his own workshop. He had little money and rented a work space instead of an apartment, sleeping on a cot and showering at the gym. He sold his work at Artwear, a chic, experimental jewelry gallery in New York’s Soho district. He is inspired by nature and creates objects that evoke the irregular shapes and textures of petals, seeds, and leaves.
