"My goal is to create jewelry that merges the worlds of dreams and reality—to make works of art that are portals where the past, present, and future combine." - Ken Fury
Ken Fury sculpts otherworldly shapes, symbols, and organic organisms like creatures, animals, spirits, plants, and trees. Each piece of jewelry is a character with a story that often shows growth, transformation, and rebirth. Ken's jewelry-making springs from his mixed-media paintings while 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 fine art pieces. He uses the finest metals and precious and semi-precious stones, including turquoise, 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 and sold in galleries, boutiques, and museums and featured in publications. Ken currently resides in Queens, New York, where he creates all of his artwork and jewelry.
