Michael Tatom Jewelry


“The main focus of my work is to translate into bronze the essence of the animal, to capture some movement or instinct and present it in a simple stylized form.” –Michael Tatom
Michael Tatom Jewelry is entirely hand made by Michael, himself.  Inspired by his sculpture line, this wearable sculpture art is refined, modern, sophisticated and fun!  Michael creates each piece with a wax carving and lost wax casting.  He uses natural gemstones and top grade metals.
Michael Tatom’s reputation as a master goldsmith was well established before he gained recognition as a sculptor creating unique animal forms in bronze. His sculptures incorporate graceful curves and elegant lines that capture an animal’s shape and the magic of its movement. Raised in a family of artists and designers, Tatom attend the Gemological Institute of America in California. After working in the San Francisco Bay area for a decade, Michael returned to his roots in New Mexico, having spent his childhood in Los Alamos.
Tatom has been making contemporary jewelry and bronze sculpture for more than twenty-five years. He lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
