Kurt Miller started his artistic journey in jewelry making in 1975, while attending the University of New Mexico.
Mostly self-taught, as a designer and a goldsmith, his passion for creating jewelry utilizes both lost wax casting and hand construction in 14k, 18k, platinum, and sterling silver. Combining contemporary Southwestern inlay with semi-precious stones and diamonds, he achieves an aesthetic gestalt where color, form, and light blend into a subtle yet eloquent statement conveying a feeling that is centered and balanced. Kurt believes that at some level in our psyche, jewelry is primal and instinctive.
Kurt Miller’s work has a singular presence among contemporary jewelry artists that captures the spirit of the Southwest and at the same time, is universal.
