Ray Van Cleve Jewelry
Ray Van Cleve has been creating elegant limited edition and one-of-a-kind silver and gold jewelry for over 40 years. He fabricates his beads from sheet silver, and has expanded to include belt buckles, pendants, small boxes, and free standing metal sculptures. He personally hand cuts and forms all of the components of his pieces. His creation process is highly meditative, and he derives great pleasure from his clients’ joy in wearing his work. Ray incorporates semi-precious stones; all natural and untreated into his creations, such as turquoise,lapis,coral,and sugilite. All of Ray’s works are made of pure sterling silver,and 18k gold. He learned how to cut stones and polish silver from a Zuni silversmith in Gallup. Ray resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife and fellow artist, Emily Van Cleve.
