Artist Jeff Fulkerson has been creating stunning, imaginative jewelry for over 30 years.
“The creative process is what I enjoy most” says Fulkerson, “I love to be able to take an idea, make it take shape and see it come to life”.
A contributing artist to Lapidary Journal/Jewelry Artist Magazine, his work has also been seen in Art Jewelry Magazine, Rock & Gem Magazine and Step by Step Wire. Jeff is a recipient of the Courtney McGowan Design award, the John Burton Lapidary Award, as well as a blue ribbon award winner for his jewelry in design and construction at the San Diego County Fair. Some of his awards include Best Educational Exhibit, Coordinator’s Cup (2005 and 2009), and Best Single Jewelry Piece (2005, 2009, 2013).
His meticulous execution and attention to detail is becoming well known among industry professionals. His latest projects include “One Hour Bracelets” instructional video for Lapidary Journal/Jewelry Artist Magazine. Jeff has also produced instructional videos on “Beginning Inlaying Jewelry”, “Stone on Stone”, “Making Concho Belts With the Hydraulic Press” as well as up-coming articles in Lapidary Journal and Step by Step Wire. His jewelry is also featured on ImpressArt’s and Wubber’s websites. A self-taught silver-smith with a background in construction and design, he counts himself fortunate to have studied with many great Native American artists in the last few years, most notably, Richard Tsosie, Navajo, Jesse Monogya, Hopi/Navajo and Michael Cheatham, Cherokee.
