Milt Fischbein is an independent jewellery artist and teacher. He discovered his love of working with precious metals over 25 years ago. Milt is one of only a handful of metal artists in North America whose studio practice focuses primarily on the design and fabrication of filigree objects. Milt has been fortunate to be able to study filigree techniques with diverse range of well-known filigree artists.
Milt has been fine tuning ancient filigree techniques in his Calgary, Alberta studio, creating a body of contemporary silver and gold filigree jewellery. He has been passing on his knowledge of filigree through workshops and lectures. He is a professional member of the Alberta Craft Council.
His works have been published in Edmonton’s Where Magazine, Alberta Craft Magazine and in Victoria Lansford’s 2019 Update of her Russian Filigree DVD. A write up on his studio was featured in the July 2017 issue of the MJSA Journal.
