Welcome to Ysla Metals!
Welcome to my website.
My winter collection can be seen by clicking on the jewelry gallery.
All pieces are handmade using traditional goldsmithing techniques. Collections of my work have been shown in Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, and the Netherlands.
I am a metalsmith working in gold, silver, and steel, creating jewelry and sculpture in my studios in Ghiffa-Verbania, Italy, and in Kensington, Maryland, USA.
I have studied in Ireland and in the United States at the Maryland Institute College of Art and Towson University, with an MFA in jewelry. I have published 2 books relating to metalsmithing: Roy Ysla author: "The Remarkable Hammer: Artistic, Historic and Curious Hammers through the Ages" and "Striking Figures: Figurative Door Knockers from the Rennaissance to the Twentieth Century."
