Arthur King: Arthur King was a self taught goldsmith who learned his craft while working with scrap metal in the Navy during World War II. Upon returning to his native New York, he developed his signature style of organic design based upon his interest in the abstract art movement of the 1960s. Arthur King created one-of-a-kind pieces with gemstones or pearls in combination with textured gold. His work has been exhibited in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the Stockholm Museum of Modern Art, and in New York at both the Museum of Contemporary Crafts as well as the American Museum of Natural History.
