Elements, Ltd. is a working studio and gallery celebrating 22 years in business and located in the Shops at Roosevelt on 42nd Street just north of I-235 in Des Moines, Iowa.  It is also a part of the state-certified Roosevelt Cultural District.  Elements, Ltd. not only features original handmade jewelry and metalwork designed by its three owners, but also the contemporary jewelry and accessories of other Iowa and national artists.  Recent articles were written about our gallery in the Des Moines Business Record by Dave Elbert and in the Des Moines Register by Michael Morain.

Each item for the gallery is carefully selected for high quality craftsmanship and creativity.  Materials range from gold, silver and platinum to specialty metals like mokume-gane and Damascus steel.  Diamonds and colored gemstones are featured in much of the work, and most pieces are either one-of-a-kind or limited edition.

As a studio, Elements, Ltd. offers services such as custom designing, reworking precious family jewelry, cleaning and polishing, gem and diamond setting, repairs, and creating tableware.  Our staff members are well-educated, personable professionals with degrees in art from Iowa State University, Indiana University and Grinnell College and with many years of experience.

The following pages of photos are archives of our past work showing examples of what can be done, and giving you the opportunity to let us know what types of designs appeal to you.  We do not replicate other artists' work or one-of-a-kind designs.  

Clicking on a photo moves you to a detailed description and clicking on the artist's name gives you that person's body of work.
