People ask me where my inspiration comes from. These Art Smith earrings have inspired many a pair. #artsmith #christophercarpentinojewelry #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #brass #earrings #handmadejewelry
Been laying low with this winter cold, but here are a just finished pair of brass, Art Smith inspired drops. I love these and variations, and so does Baltimore. Snatch em up before they fly away! #christophercarpentinojewelry #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #artsmithinspired #brass #earrings #kinetic #kineticearrings #ooak #madeinsavannah
I very rarely model my own jewelry, but scale is important. Just at two inches in diameter these textured brass, asymmetrical, boomerang earrings are fabulous. Send a note with interest before they venture out to Baltimore! #brass #texture #texturedmetal #midcenturyinspired #christophercarpentinojewelry #jewelryartist #postearrings #madeinsavannah
Rememberjng my time in Baltimore at the Walters Art Museum. I have now seen 3 of these bowls in museums and held on in my hands. Made by Gorham in 1871 to celebrate the Alaska Purchase. There were only 100 or maybe 500 made. I think 100. The one I held was offered to me, $68,000. #sterling #baltimore #waltersmuseum #gorham #alaska #christophercarpentinojewelry
Been thinking a lot about summer pieces lately. Time to dive into the sketchbooks. and maybe time to let go of older designs at killer prices. #christophercarpentinojewelry #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #jewelrysketch #sketchbook #madeinsavannah #sterling #earrings

Working on a project of small (ish) bird scatter pins I sketched while on a painfully long jury. These were all drawn when we were not allowed to be talking about the case. Brass and sterling. I have had birds on the brain for months and months. #bird #birdjewelry #brass #sterling #birdpin #christophercarpentinojewelry #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #madeinsavannah #madeinsavannahgeorgia
The 11th Day of Christmas brought an amazing gift, a sky like I have never seen, and NO SNOW this year. #jewelryartist #savannahgeorgia #savannah #pinksky #christophercarpentinojewelry
Day four. Two years ago today was one of the more emotional days in my life. I fulfilled a dream. I saw Bernini’s David. #bernini #david #berninidavid #gallerieborghese #italy #rome #christophercarpentinojewelry
