Adam Foster Jewelry
Adam Foster has been fascinated by design since his grandparents took him through Italy as a young child. From the moment he stepped off the plane, he knew that Europe had a different feel—everything was older, more attentive, less disposable. This attraction to craftsmanship led Adam to The School of the Art Institute in Chicago where he earned his BFA in 2003.
From hand engraving to gem faceting Adam is interested in learning and preserving classic techniques. His goal is to make distinctive jewelry that is beautiful and not mass-produced. My belief is that each piece I create reflects the person wearing it. Jewelry tells a story, and as co-author, I take great care in telling someone’s story accurately. Within the gems and metals, I attempt to embody a sentiment, a personality…some element that speaks to the wearer alone.
It is this focus on individuality that makes Adam Foster’s work stand apart from other jewelers. Through sophisticated CAD design and 3D printing, Adam produces designs that can be imagined, discussed with the client and then produced by hand using old world techniques. The result is threefold: startlingly unique jewelry that speaks to the past, the future and the wearer herself.www.fosterjewelry.com
