Handcrafted Art

Dennis Higgins is more than a jewelry designer—he is an innovator and American Craftsman. From the striking tumbled look and asymmetrical shapes of his sculptural designs to the unique process he has created to carefully craft each piece in his New Jersey studio, Dennis Higgins makes jewelry that is truly one of a kind. Dennis Higgins Jewelry is handmade of 18 Karat Gold on Brass or Sterling Silver on Steel. And, unlike most plated jewelry, Dennis Higgins Cuffs and Earrings do not contain any nickel—a metal that can irritate those with sensitive skin and allergies. Finding inspiration in light and natural forms, Dennis’ goal is to design wearable art as comfortable and lightweight as it is bold and beautiful. With the Cuffs and Earrings he has designed for his Grommet launch, we daresay he has achieved his goal and then some.

    I am an American craftsman. I create bold urban jewelry rooted in the idea of making sculpture in a wearable way. Each piece is produced by hand in my studio from a piece of sheet or wire. My work is in motion, always evolving and adapting to new inspirational ideas. I see shapes on the human body that conform to planes of light and constantly change evoking other shapes. I am always inspired by the proportions in nature and the space that exists between each shape. This is my world, my inspiration, what evokes passion in me as a designer. It is where I like to be.

    Dennis, these are GORGEOUS -- how about in ROSE GOLD (at least that color)?? I love the look, it's like hammered metal, and I love that!!

    Hi Belle,

    Thanks for the feedback! I actually tried these on myself and they are just as beautiful in person as they are in photos. Right now gold and silver is what we're offering, but Dennis will take this into consideration, I'm sure. He should be along shortly to comment too.

    @Amy Hello These can be done in rose gold but I decided to use an 18 karat green gold so it will age very slowly and beautifully.Brass and green gold are exactly the same color so a patina developes after a long period of time and it looks great

    @Hey Larry that cuff a little thinner in width and a little thicker would be a great mens bracelet/cuff

    These are beautiful -- is the metal soft enough to be adjustable (i.e bend slightly to fit the wrist?)

    @Diana Hi Diana, yes that is exactly how I make them. You sort of pinch it to fit your wrist I also make them thin enough to be very comfortable
