4. Elizabeth Goluch (@elizabethgoluch)

Meet Elisabeth — a metal smith who creates unique metal insects. Her dedication to detail is unreal and we love her work in steel, silver, and gold. On her website, Elizabeth writes:
“My focus in recent years has been on creating one of a kind, larger-than-life, highly detailed metal insects. I incorporate precious metals, gemstones and various other materials in their construction. Articulated body parts and the use of obvious rivets are important devices. The decorative details and the treasure contained in each piece reference elements of insect life, lore and environment.”

5. Busra Kolmuk (@busrakolmuk)

This young artist shows off her art, often made from reclaimed metal, and the process of constructing them. Expect a lot of behind-the-scenes and fresh, creative ideas — such as the deconstructed “Persona” sculpture.

Although we do not trade silver, we couldn’t ignore this silversmith and jewellery artist. Nicole Ringgold calls herself “plant obsessed” and this is clearly visible in her work where she creates metal copies of miniature leaves and flowers.

9. Jacob Colburn (@jacobgcolburn)

Copper, with its unique, colourful patina, is the metal of choice for this Texas-based artist. He explains his love for this material, “I am fascinated by copper because it is so versatile. The colours you can pull from it are quite amazing. I have been very interested in creating geometrical shapes. With acid and inks I change the chemical make-up of my pieces and make works of art.”
