Welcome to michael boyd studio!

"My jewelry is a compilation of standard materials and processes aimed at a progressive and innovative use of unusual, rare, and traditional materials. In the collecting and choosing of stones, I am a colorist, and while cutting the stones, I define the form and structure. Using stone as a medium my goal is to blend and integrate these materials with the metal. "

about the artist

Michael Boyd is a nationally renowned jewelry designer, metalsmith, and lapidary artist based in Pueblo and Salida, Colorado and is a co-owner of Cultureclash Gallery in downtown Salida. Using stone as his primary medium, Michael integrates metal into rock and enjoys finding creative ways to make this concept work in materials that range from simple river rock to gemstones combined with precious metals.
