John Tzelepis, a metalsmith and jeweler, has been dedicated to the art of jewelry and metals for more than a decade.
He received his undergraduate degree in Jewelry and Metals from Skidmore College and his MFA from Arizona State University.
Working in his studios in Arizona and New York, he has devoted himself to the research, development, and refinement of techniques to produce jewelry that exceeds the character and quality requirements his customers demand.
The line, form, color, and texture of these new designs are a reflection of his passion for redefining both the art and function of jewelry-making. He currently runs the Metals program at the Phoenix Center for the Arts and is the Visiting Assistant Professor in Metals at Arizona State University.
