Arthur George "Art" Smith (19171982) was one of the leading modernist jewelers of the mid-20th century, and one of the few Afro-Caribbean people working in the field to reach international recognition.

He trained at Cooper Union, NYU, and under Winifred Mason. Many of his pieces were designed to be worn by avant-garde dancers, which influenced his style.

The pieces were often large. Of his own work, he said: A piece of jewelry is in a sense an object that is not complete in itself. Jewelry is a what is it? Until you relate it to the body. The body is a component in design just as air and space are. Like line, form, and color, the body is a material to work with. It is one of the basic inspirations in creating form.
