Jewelers are pretty expressive and artistic people. Some are also a bit spiky socially and say some salty things, which I find entertaining. There are a lot of philosophers in the bunch as well. And real givers. The passion that I see in my industry inspires me.
I’ve been seeing a lot of tattooed jewelers lately and feel that their tats have a lot to say about their love of gemstones and the tools of their trade. Celebrating their body art is something I’d like to do. Here without further ado my tattooed brethren.
Erin Carson works at Brunell’s Fine Jewelry and Design in Kansas. She’s clearly into the purity of gold and good design.
I love Heather Ann Rankin’s peacock with dangling jewelry decorations. Clearly a kick ass designing jeweler.
Hoping I got this right, Paul Salvor-Harden owns Paul’s Jewelry Design in Amherst New York.
His bold, angular and edgy jewelry is very cool.
Passion comes in all sizes, shapes and expressions. I love that not only do my jeweler friends make beautiful and inspiring jewelry, but show their intense feelings with their body art.
