James Barker was originally trained as a painter and sculptor, but had also tried his hand at graphic design, cinematography, and photography before moving onto metalsmithing in 1972. His one-of-a-kind jewelry is made using ancient techniques such as sawing, filing, forging, soldering, fusing, respoussage, and chasing.
