A mathematician and musician as well as a jewelry designer, Tom Kruskal is passionate about design that is linear, light, and graceful. All his work is hand-forged in New England using special gold and platinum alloys, and often features diamonds, pearls, and gemstones. Trained in design at Harvard University and self-taught in jewelry making, his inspiration comes from organic shapes in nature, the fluidity of the ocean, and from music and dance. A jewelry designer for the past thirty years, he favors simple, clean lines in his work, and strives to capture a sense of movement and balance.
