Jeffrey W. Hart, Richmond, KY
Jewelry from the Heart
metal - jewelry
Jeffrey W. Hart moved to Kentucky in 2002 from Phoenix, AZ for quiet town living. His interest in jewelry began at an early age when he watched his jewelry-making father and aunt create jewelry. He began learning jewelry-making skills as a young boy, and practiced in the evenings to learn how to cut, file, shape and solder his jewelry, and how to polish stones. He eventually created a line of jewelry and had a small successful business as a teenager selling at a craft market in Portland, Oregon.
Now, after other careers and with his children out on their own, Jeffrey has returned to his jewelry making career. He loves finding new gems that many have never seen before, or cabochons (shaped and polished gemstones) that are unique. He designs mountings by wrapping sterling wire around the stones to show off their unique qualities.
Jeffrey Hart’s jewelry can be found at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Berea, KY.
