Josephine Jacobsmeyer

Jewelry – Metalsmith

Biography

Josephine Jacobsmeyer was trained as a metalsmith at the Rochester Institute of Technology, School of American Craftsmen in Rochester, NY, and then opened her own studio creating one of a kind and limited production jewelry. She thinks of her jewelry as units or elements created separately then combined to form a beautiful and harmonious hole. She mixes graphic or architectural shapes and forms from her earlier education and training in interior design with organic forms, which are influencing her now, every day.

Each piece is hand made and constructed, including most of the linkage systems and chains. Elements are fabricated from sterling, gold or copper. Sawing, filing forming, and chasing are a few of the traditional metalsmithing techniques she utilizes. Texture is important to Josephine to add depth and personality. Precious and semiprecious stones are used to accent an area or element and also to add color in the overall design.

Josephine is a juried member of The Best of Missouri Hands.
