There’s great handmade jewelry in all pockets of this country, but we think the designs coming out of Arizona are especially beautiful and worth introducing to locals and out-of-towners alike. To that end, Krikawa recently unveiled a permanent in-store
display of Arizona jewelry. It’s the first space of its kind for area metalsmiths to show their work, and we’re thrilled to shine a light on this fine and very difficult craft. The display will offer a regularly rotating lineup of contemporary jewelry inspired by the natural beauty and history of our state. Here are four artists we’re featuring right now:

The Backstory of the NEW Krikawa Jewelry Art Gallery
When I was in art school, I fantasized about one day owning a gallery that also showed other artwork. Apparently, other jewelers had a similar idea, and for years Tucson enjoyed two jewelry art galleries. (One of them even showed some of my work when
I was in college!) Meanwhile, I went on to open Krikawa Jewelry Designs, on North Campbell Avenue. Though small, the showroom has served us well over the years, but a few years ago, I realized our quickly-growing business needed bigger digs.
