Artist Jeff Fulkerson M.A. has been creating stunning, imaginative jewelry for over 30 years. Jeff is the inventor of the Steady Stamp™ for stamping and the Fast Flare Forming Disks (pat. pend.) for making spinner bangles. He has taught at Bead Fest Santa Fe, Philly, & Texas, Bead & Button Show, Art Retreat in the Desert, Art Unraveled, the San Diego Museum of Man, and several private studios and bead shops across the country. A contributing artist to Lapidary Journal/Jewelry Artist Magazine, his work has also been seen in Art Jewelry Magazine, Rock & Gem Magazine, the Tucson Show Guide and Step by Step Wire. Jeff has also produced instructional videos on "Beginning Inlaying Jewelry", "Stone on Stone", "Making Concho Belts With the Hydraulic Press" and Rings!" and two Lapidary videos as well as up-coming articles in Lapidary Journal. A self-taught silver-smith with a background in construction and design, he counts himself fortunate to have studied with many great Native American artists in the last few years, most notably, Richard Tsosie, Navajo, Jesse Monogya, Hopi/Navajo and Michael Cheatham, Cherokee.
