John Siever Jewelry
John Siever derives great satisfaction as he takes an idea from sketch to completion. He finds his work to be both relaxing and satisfying. His design style is rustic and primitive. Texture and finish play a significant role in creating a final piece that is both visually appealing and comfortable to wear.
John Siever eschews the mass-produced approach, creating his jewelry one piece at a time using various tools for shape and texture. He enjoys working with sterling silver and has been able to achieve interesting finishes that offer attractive alternatives to the standard high-gloss sheen typically associated with silver jewelry.
John Siever is a recently retired public school administrator who began making jewelry thirty years ago as a part-time hobby. He learned the basics from an established metalsmith but is largely self-taught. Taking courses at the Metalwerx Community Studio in Waltham, MA, John continues his professional improvement through exploration and collaboration with experts in the field.
