Robert Burkett is a world-recognized jewelry maker and has been called the finest beadmaker in America. He works primarily in silver and shibuichi, a Japanese process where silver is mixed with copper to produce stunning arrays of color and form. The pieces below are crafted by hand using the lost-wax casting technique. Highly collectible, his pieces are versatile and affordable while being unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.
Tiger Tiger is now also carrying a limited range of Bob Burkett designs cast in bronze by an artisan in Thailand. Bob has carved each piece in wax and trained the jewelry maker to insure quality. These new bronze beads are an affordable way to collect Burkett designs.
