For jewelry artisan and silversmith Sandy Maggio, its always about the metal. Manipulating the shape, texture and patina of metal into something different and beautiful to hold new meaning. Hammering, forging, soldering, or casting silver into the unique designs she envisions is the strength of her work. Maggio’s jewelry has an underlying edge and toughness that can only be described as custom wearable art.
Her jewelry line consists of one of a kind pieces that allow the wearer to make a bold statement. She fabricates each piece in her own distinctive style, often using text and symbolism in intricate detail. Every item is handcrafted in her studio using raw materials such as sterling silver, fine silver, precious and semi-precious gemstones. To compliment each series she occasionally embellishes with gold, bronze, vintage pieces, or elements found in nature.
Considering herself a metalsmith, first and foremost, Maggio is also an award winning artist in other mediums as well, including painting and mixed media work.
This designer, well known for her memorial jewelry, also welcomes commissioned work.
