Santa Fe Artist: Mark Humenick
While earning his Master’s Degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, Mark Humenick’s work was accepted in his first international juried jewelry show in Munich, Germany. He has worked for Fred Joaillier (Paris), Tiffany & Co., and The Lester Rutledge Collection.
Humenick’s work has appeared in Jeweler’s Circular Keystone and International Jeweler. Humenick developed his own series of 18k gold and colored stoens, which led to art jewelry representation in galleries across the US. This led Humenick and his wife, Susan (a gemologist) to relocate to Santa Fe and launch Studio Humenick. Each piece is unique and hand made. The design focus is based upon the highly reflective quality of silver, the warmth of gold, and the natural colors of gemstones.
Sometimes the metal moves where IT wants to go, says Humenick.
That’s fine. It works. It’s all about moving metal. Humenick’s work incorporates both ancient and contemporary techniques. All the precious metals used are reclaimed/recycled. The sterling used is a special tarnish-resistant alloy, gemstones are natural and ethically sourced, diamonds are conflict free and the turquoise is sourced from the US.
