Bessy Berman

I am a jeweler, wood artist, photographer and sometimes painter. I call myself a metalsmith as I work in many metals, primarily sterling. With the current rise in price of metals I am using more copper these days instead of sterling. I also do gold vermeil which gold plated over sterling. I send this work out to be done and use 18 K gold. I also use a process called married metals which solders sterling copper and brass together. My work is almost always textured although at times stamped and I think of it as having a painterly quality which comes from my painting background.
