An Open Love Letter to Arthur King



Arthur King was a self taught modernist goldsmith whose work became popular in the 1960s and 70s. And I love it. It's super organic, using a lot of wax casting, raw gems and baroque pearls.



Totally gorgeous right? According to the interwebs he had shops in He had shops in New York, Miami, Paris, Havana and London, but there are no longer any stores or really central stockist on the internet.



I feel like this is the kind of jewelry mermaids would wear, floating around as they looked in their little shell compacts and applied sea urchin lipstick à la Ariel in the Little Mermaid. Maybe you'd find one of these rings someone in her cavern of treasures? Certainly not out of the realm of possibility. By the way, feel free to buy that first ring and send it directly to me. Free hats for life.

  1. Thank you for all the info. You put me on the right track regarding a bracelet that I was researching. Did anyone take you up on the "free hats for life" proposal and send you "the first ring" yet?
