Velvet da Vinci

Opened in 1991, Velvet da Vinci (our name inspired by an old Perry Mason television episode) is a gallery of contemporary craft specializing in artist jewelry and metalwork. Representing artists from the US, Europe, Latin America and Japan, the quality and range of work shown at Velvet da Vinci has made it a regular must-see stop for collectors, museum curators, and other knowledgeable art and art-jewelry enthusiasts.
