PRESS RELEASE:

Tampa Florida November 2016 - Owners:  Velina Glass & Sons
Art Jewelry is an expression of art and sculpture designed to adorn the human form.  

Founded in 2008 Art Jewelry Online is the leading online retailer dedicated exclusively to the sale of art jewelry.  We champion the tradition of fine Contemporary American Craft.  Our artists are some of the most acclaimed 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.  

Recent changes include the addition of new artists Nancy Troske, Klara Borbas, Leslie Zemenek and others and a name change from Art Jewelry Online to Artful Jewelry.  We have moved into the city of Tampa to broaden our marketing base.  And last but not least we welcomed twin grandsons into our family!  Hopefully little Elijah and Gabriel will continue the family tradition of artistry and craft.
