Jack Boglioli started creating jewelry in 2008. During a 7 year period of self learning he practiced the techniques of binding and weaving precious metals, exploring what was possible to create using almost no tools. At that time, he says, “I became captivated by the level of focus and precision this process demanded, and the intricate layered textures that it could produce in a finished piece”.
After moving from New York to New Mexico, he received formal training in traditional jewelry making at Central New Mexico Community College, in 2015. Today, his goal is to achieve a seamless integration of traditional metalsmithing techniques with the binding and weaving methods he became so enamored with from the start. He explains:
“All of my designs incorporate special binding and weaving techniques executed with thin strands of fine silver and high karat gold. I use these methods to embellishing a piece, bind multiple components together, and trap stones into a fabricated framework. The beauty of woven silver and gold is incomparable, especially when it is used to set stones. From both closeup and far away it tends to draw the viewer in, to experience it’s finer details. I strive to showcase this beauty, while maintaining the structural integrity and elegance of a well crafted jewelry piece.”
In 2018, Jack was named “Jewellery Designer of the Year – USA” by U.K. based LUX Life Magazine.
