Rubina Gallo Jewelry
Rubina Gallo, a longtime artist from Tucson, Arizona, is a jewelry designer whose sculptural one-of-a-kind jewelry evolved from her many years as a stone sculptor. Rubina is constantly challenged by contrasting semi and precious gemstones with handcoiled silver or gold wire. She works with various gauges of wire and incorporates the coiled wire, stones and components into her unique sculpted designs. The challenge for Rubina is achieved by working each piece with solderless methods. None of the parts of her designs are soldered, each piece is handcrafted. Rubina loves every aspect of creating each unique jewelry design. Rubina received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Masters of Art degrees from The University of Arizona, Tucson. Shes been an active artist, art educator and advocate of the arts for 35+ years. Since retiring as an art specialist in the year 2000, she happily works at her studio in The Historic Warehouse District, downtown Tucson.
