EZ Torch, Orca cleaning

Hey there!I'm a pretty new silver smith! I have just started up a little work bench of my own and I bought the EZ torch. It has been working really well the last few months, but this week the flame has started to surge and sputter. Tonight I was just about to anneal a piece of silver and I went to light the torch, It made a fire ball and the flames fell back running down the handle, I turned off both knobs but the flame didn't go out until I blew it out! so after I was sure the flame was out I…See More

Claudio Pino

 CLAUDIO PINO is a jewellery designer world renowned especially for his unique sculptural rings. The way he captures color is the source of inspiration for all of Pino’s designs. He juxtaposes icy silver with the

warm glow of gold, calm green emeralds with vivid red rubies, complimented with the fresh hue of white pearls.

Since 1999, Pino's collections have been shown at numerous international festivals and Biennales such as SOFA New York, SOFA Chicago, PalmBeach3,
JMA Hong Kong, Cheongju Biennale, SNAG Conferences as well as at various galleries in North America and Europe.

In 2007, he received the Steel Trophy award « Best in Show 60 Years of MAG
and the Year of Craft »  from the Metal Arts Guild of Canada and later, the Special Prize award at the Cheongju Biennale in South Korea. In addition, his rings are included in the Lark Jewellery Books of 1000 Rings: Inspiring Adornments for the Hand, 500 Wedding Rings: Celebrating a Classic Symbol of Commitment and 500 Gemstone Jewels by the editor, Marthe Le Van.

Claudio Pino's work is always recognized by the fascinating and innovative ways in which he transforms raw materials into unique and extraordinary works of art.


Awarded with the Steel Trophy Metal Arts Guild of Canada
14-karat gold, 925 sterling silver, diamonds, ruby, moonstone
A kinetic ring with a moonstone attached to the center of a mechanism. The stone portrays a drop of water floating freely in space. Even though the stone is fixed in the middle, it is able to pivot 360 degrees in all 6
possible directions, which is represented by each movable ring.


Vena Amoris Collection

14-karat gold, 925 sterling silver,

amethyst, fire opal, chrome diopside, pearls.

Vena Amoris Collection
14-karat gold, 925 sterling silver, green vesuvianite.

14-karat gold, 925 sterling silver, Aquamarine.



The Tactus Ring draws a bridge between the traditions of the metallic suits of armor worn in the middle ages to the historic representation of jewelry throughout time. This ring restores the importance of precision,expression and precious embellishment. It questions how the sensation of touch has been amplified over the centuries, especially through the influence of digital culture.
