Jewelry by Ross Barbera


Although painting has defined my life, as a graduate student studying painting at Pratt Institute during the 1970's, I was also introduced to jewelry design. I instantly fell in love with working on small, three dimensional jewelry objects, and lost wax and direct metal fabrication became my favorite methods of construction. By the mid 1980's my jewelry work had evolved from working in metal to working in paper and wood, and was becoming more closely aligned with my paintings. Watercolor on paper replaced enamels on silver, and whenever I wasn't painting, I was making jewelry.
