OUR STORY

     Artful Jeweler formerly Art Jewelry Online is the leading online retailer dedicated exclusively to the sale of Art Jewelry.
     Founded in 2008 Artful Jeweler came about through a collaboration of teachers and students at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Recognizing that the internet was becoming a powerful tool for artists to market their work Velina Glass the then president of the Metals Guild of Maryland spearheaded this initiative by building and launching the new web site.
     From the beginning the artist centered web site attracted some of the most acclaimed jewelry artists in the industry from the ground breaking enamel work of Baltimorian Shana Kroiz to the edgy street art of Boris Bally who transforms recycled street signs, weapon parts, and a wide variety of found materials into objects for reflection and adornment.  
     What we are most proud of is that in our 10 years of operation we have had only 1 return! We attribute this amazing statistic to the quality of work produced by our artists and customer service that is without parallel. Please visit our store at www.ArtfulJeweler.com and discover why our customers consider us the premier store for wearable art.
