John Tzelepis

John Tzelepis was my first metals teacher in college (I was in the first class he ever taught). Anyway, he is one of the reasons I fell in love with metals. He also happens to be my boss at Phoenix Art Center, and also just a really good friend. He has finally jumped on the etsy train and opened up a shop.
Check it out to see all his awesome work. He has just started up, so check back often as he is adding new pieces all the time. I already own a bunch of his jewelry but this is going to tempt me into purchasing even more...
Some of my favorites are these:Sterling Silver Earrings

Enamel Ring

Enamel Pendant Large

Also, check out his website to see his other work. You can also find John's work in the Lark Book 500 Necklaces, and in The Art of Jewelry Wood.
