Elizabeth Tokoly

After receiving her masters in fine arts in metalsmithing, Elizabeth began teaching at the 92nd St Y. She has been teaching jewelry and metalsmith since 2000. She has taught many classes from beginner adults to silversmith. And kid’s classes too. She built her studio while opening Studio No. 159, a full-service interior design firm that specialized in decorative painting, faux finishing and space planning. Her philosophy is that art is a significant factor towards a happier and successful life.
To find a balance between making art, teaching, operating an interior design firm, and painting, she created EatMetal, Inc., the fine art of design, to gratify her spirit. EatMetal, Inc. specializes in handmade bespoke jewelry, one of a kind art jewelry, fine jewelry collections and objects. Her style is contemporary and uses traditional techniques. EatMetal has evolved into a gallery and metals studio. Her gallery/metals studio is comprised of an art jewelry gallery, bench space for jewelry classes and her own personal studio where her work is made.
Investigating math and nature inspires Elizabeth’s unique artistic approach for designing art jewelry. Her artistry has a minimal aesthetic and echoes the gracefulness of organic characteristics of nature. She manipulates nature’s forms by forging, forming, replicating, growing and simplifying to create intricate designs. Her pieces use simple lines, primary shapes or structures and the growth of these forms creates original and unique pieces of wearable art.
She constructs her work with traditional techniques and contemporary ideas. The natural forms inspire her sculptures (or objects, as she likes to call them) as well as her statement pieces of art jewelry, which are one of a kind. Both influence her limited-edition collections of art jewelry. You can find many of her forms throughout history.
Elizabeth handcrafts pieces in precious metals such as sterling silver, 18k gold, palladium, platinum. She uses ethically sourced colored gemstones and diamonds in harmonious shapes. Her edgy, classic and timeless jewelry is her fine art of design.
