Artist Andy “Lif” Lifschutz’ continuously evolving collection of fine jewelry is a culmination of his life experiences. For Andy, inspiration is boundless. It can come in the form of a smile he shares with his son, the subtle warmth of the Oregon sunshine on his skin, the hum of history throughout the streets and alleys of Italy, memories of his grandmother’s hands in the process of creativity, the gritty energy surrounding his Brooklyn studio, the vibration emanated by a collective chanting at his California Buddhist center, or in the simple act of spending time with his wife and family in their Los Angeles home.
Passion, intention and a radical embodiment of life are at the core of Andy’s being. Underneath his relaxed yet energetic optimism towards life runs a deep drive to add more beauty to the world, and he wholeheartedly embraces all aspects of creating each piece in his collection. Andy collaborates with craftsmen and artists whose work he admires, including the stonecutters who provide him with proprietary cuts with which to work, as well as artisans that employ ancient jewelry making techniques, or the most state-of-the-art technology, in finalizing his creative vision.
