Ken Fury sculpts otherworldly shapes and organic organisms, like creatures, animals, spirits, 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 that integrate elements of his Nuevomexicano and Indigenous (Genízaro) roots from southern Colorado and New Mexico. Ken fashions each work 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 designs 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 painting and jewelry have been exhibited in galleries and museums and featured in publications. He currently resides in Queens, New York, where he creates all of his artwork and jewelry.
