Gia Hammond

Gia is a master Goldsmith/Designer who, with her husband, operated a fine jewelry gallery/workshop in downtown Chicago from 1972 – 2003.  Most of her work was custom designed and hand made out of 18k gold or platinum for clients.  Gia personally made each prototype before pieces went to production.  Around 1976 the gallery began to feature works of a small group of internationally recognized fine jewelry artists with new and original ideas.  Gia taught fine gold-smithing to her workshop staff throughout the gallery’s existence.

Retired for many years now, Gia misses being a part of the art world and would like to help new, upcoming artists.  She is ready to teach you!
