Handcrafted Fine Art Jewelry at Singing Stone in Tampa, Florida
Fine Art Jewelry
Dan Balk Jewelry is for sale and on exhibit at the gallery. Each piece is one of a kind, designed by Dan, who creates his own Sterling Silver, 18K and 14K gold alloys that he fashions, mills, forges, fuses and brazes into miniature sculptures for personal adornment. Dan selects and sets each stone, often performing his own lapidary work on select stones. This allows Dan complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection.

"America has a rich heritage of fine craft that is in jeopardy of being lost. I offer my classes in an effort to preserve the traditional cultural arts of American crafts people. In an age where people are increasingly dependent upon computers, machines and mass produced goods, I believe it is extremely important to retain the time-honored skills of hand craftsmanship that have been passed down through hundreds of years from teacher to student." - Dan Balk
