Gregory Pyra, an international jewelry artist, has been creating his work in different countries, some which include: Poland, Germany, Sweden, and the United States. Born in Poland in the 1950's, Gregory began creating art jewellery from a very young age. So this is how you would know that what he does cannot be something that everybody else could learn to do. Gregory was one of the first Polish artists in Poland who added gemstones such as amethyst and garnet to amber jewellery made in silver. Some of his early design pieces are shown here on our website. These pieces are also published in books. And some of these pieces are shown today in in museums such as the Malbork Castle Museum, in Malbork on display, and the Amber Museum in Gdansk in Poland on display, and the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum, if Pforzheim has Gregory's rings in their archives. In the 1970's Gregory emigrated to Sweden where he made pieces which were purchased for the Royal family, for King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia in 1976 after his work was shown in Tidö Slott, in Tidö-Lindö, Sweden. In 1981 when Gregory emigrated to the United States his jewellery got an upgrade from just sterling silver to sterling silver and gold. And instead of amber, faceted gemstones were now one of the jewellery's main features. To the gemstones Gregory added additional components such as sea glass, sea shells, glass, and pearls. And once again, this wasn't just jewellery, but it was art jewellery. After living in the United States for a number of years eventually Gregory decided to return home to Europe. Today Gregory's art jewellery is shown on different social media and on our website.
