Al Stanford, Jewelry Designer and Artisan, works from his studio near New Albany, Mississippi to produce unique hand forged jewelry using natural materials. A life long outdoorsman, Al is inspired and awed by the beauty and gracefulness of God’s creation. His designs are still made the way they have been for thousands of years. Using only fire, basic hand tools, and natural elements he produces jewelry with a rare “Earthy” quality.
“I believe that “simple” designs have a timeless beauty and the imperfection of our handmade pieces incorporates a very organic design element that reconnects us to the natural world. I create jewelry using what the Earth provides, Copper, Silver, Gold, Semi-Precious Gemstones, Fresh Water Pearls and other materials.”
