For more than 30 years, Ray Van Cleve has been fabricating elegant, limited edition and one-of-a-kind sterling silver and high karat gold jewelry, as well as metal art objects. He personally hand cuts and forms all components of his work at his studio in Santa Fe, often incorporating semi-precious stones, such as turquoise, coral and lapis.
Ray was initially recognized for creating saucer, acorn, overlaid and melon-shaped beaded necklaces out of sheet silver. His work has expanded to include pendants, bracelets and small boxes.
