Guidero graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002 with a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. Her jewelry consists of a series of simple geometric shapes inspired by modernist design. She primarily uses sterling silver, gold and semi-precious stones with oxidized silver to provide contrast and accentuate the graphic nature of her designs.
California artist Sarah Graham combines her love of nature with an expert knowledge of gold-smithing. She is known for combining oxidized cobalt chrome (a matte black finished stainless steel) with 18k recycled gold and black, white or cognac diamonds to create dramatic jewelry with an organic feel.
New York artist Reiko Ishiyama was deeply influenced by the traditional artisans of her native island Shikoku, Japan. Sculptural and bold, she uses silver that is more tempered and harder than American sterling to create jewelry that uses the body as a pedestal.
Colorado Artist Todd Reed introduced raw and uncut diamonds to contemporary jewelry. Utilizing these ethically mined and socially responsible diamonds as well as recycled 18 karat gold he creates jewelry that has both an ancient and very modern feel. Todd is a true innovator and still believes "that the 'most perfect cut' is still an uncut."
Indiana artist Terri Logan creates jewelry with stones found in nearby rivers or the Great Lakes set in sterling silver. She does all of her own lapidary work and her stones have a soft “tumbled” lake look to them. Each piece is as unique as the stones she finds and many jewelry pieces include Petoskey stones and other fossils common to Lake Michigan.
