Goldsmith and artist, Dan Balk, designs and fabricates every piece of jewelry from raw materials from his studio in Tampa, Florida. Dan’s expanding jewelry collections are for sale and on exhibit at The Singing Stone. Each piece is one of a kind, designed by Dan, who creates his own sterling silver, 18K and 14K alloys that he then fashions, mills, forges, fuses and brazes into miniature sculptures for personal adornment. Dan selects and sets each stone, often performing his own lapidary work on select stones. Dan has complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection.
