Features Hillsborough jeweler Ben Dyer who has been making art since childhood, and he began creating jewelry in 1975. His work is exhibited in galleries and art shows nationwide. Direct metal techniques such as cold forging, handforming, texturing, and gold soldering are the methods used to construct the jewelry. The techniques are labor-intensive, and the finished work is detailed and meticulous. For Ben, a successful design suggests motion, reveals unique aspects from different angles, and expresses elegance and grace in asymmetry. In his designs, flowing lines and elongated forms contrast with coarser, textured, or hard-edged shapes. Use of gemstones and colors of gold provide accent and color contrast. Ben’s work will be highlighted in the shop through June 23. Artist reception on May 27 from 6 – 9 pm.
