ROBERT EBENDORF - Recipient of the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award | For the past twenty-five years, Robert Ebendorf has been re-purposing existing materials by devising ingenious uses for the discarded and discovering ways to make the used into the new. Known for jewelry that includes everything from buttons to crab claws, he continues in his investigations into "representations". Ebendorf's conceptual approach to jewelry questions the nature of adornment itself...
