Luce Artist Biography

Tod Pardon wanted a career distinct from that of his father, jewelry artist Earl Pardon, and so pursued painting and ceramics. Tod eventually agreed to apprentice with his father, learning a variety of jewelry and metalsmithing techniques and working with gold foil, glass beads, and painted glass. It was not until his father’s death that Tod began to find a style of his own. His series of figural brooches function both as wearable jewelry and as small sculptures that can be displayed on a matching pedestal. Two necklaces by Earl Pardon are also represented in the Luce Center.
