Layers of high-quality materials, multiple textures, various techniques and plenty of labor go into the jewelry designs of Judith Kinghorn.
The Minneapolis-based jewelry artist and metalsmith works primarily in high-karat gold and sterling silver, which she often pairs with precious gemstones. She combines heavy layers of gold and sterling silver that are milled and then textured. Her creations are often the result of multiple metalsmithing processes and techniques that result complex, cohesive works. She doesn’t work from drawings and her designs are inspired by nature and modern world.
Kinghorn was one of the jewelry artists at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show.
