Carasmiths creates art and jewelry from glass, metal and vintage discardia in a style best described as ‘contemporary vintage with a hint of bohemian’. Carasmiths specializes in custom amulets and miniature portraits, each with their own tale to tell.
Drawing and design study at Barnstone Studios, goldsmithing at The Baum School of Art and metal-casting and glasswork training at the Banana Factory Cultural Arts Center provide a solid foundational blueprint to utilize throughout the crafting of each piece, ensuring its quality and longevity.
Carasmiths methodology is self-owned and sincere -- every creation richly personal and authentic. Between concept and completion are several visits to the saw, the grinder and the kiln. Using glass, found items, silver, gold and other precious metals, each individual piece is custom crafted. The result is lovingly fashioned, wearable art awash with rich color and personality.
