About the Artist
Working from his Central Maine farmhouse, Boyd Johnson creates modernist and architectural pieces from sterling silver, bronze, copper, and 14 karat gold with the incorporation of precious and semi-precious stones. Boyd’s jewelry is hand wrought, meaning every aspect of each piece is built by hand down to the smallest details and fixtures. The metal used is acquired from United States based refineries, recycled rather than recently pulled from the earth. A full-time jeweler, Boyd exhibits his work at local fine craft shows, including MCA’s Portland Fine Craft Show, and many abroad including Lincoln Center in New York City. His favorite regular appearances include the annual Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine. A member of the Maine Crafts Association, Boyd is also a member of The Society of North American Goldsmiths.
