Ken Fury sculpts otherworldly shapes and organic organisms, like creatures, animals, beings, spirits, plants, and trees. Each piece of jewelry is a character with its own story that often shows growth, transformation, and rebirth. Ken's jewelry-making springs from his mixed-media paintings while also integrating elements of his Nuevomexicano and Indigenous Genízaro heritage from southern Colorado and New Mexico. Ken fashions each piece by hand, using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as hand fabrication, carving, and lost-wax casting. He specializes in one-of-a-kind and limited-edition pieces and uses precious and semi-precious stones, including turquoise, which is mined from his home area in the American Southwest. Ken makes each piece with the utmost attention to detail to ensure its durability, wearability, and originality. Ken's paintings and jewelry have been exhibited in galleries and museums and featured in publications, including Native American Art Magazine's Dec/Jan 2022 article Shiny Objects, which included Ken as one of "the best working artists today." He currently resides in Queens, New York, where he creates all of his artwork and jewelry.

 

Ken comments: "I focus on creating innovative works of art that connect to the past while forging a new vision of the future."
