Ken Loeber is a jeweler who works in Algoma, Wisconsin, where he lives with his wife Dona Look and their son Reid Loeber. The artist graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee with his BFA in 1970 and MFA in 1978 in sculpture. He has successfully exhibited his jewelry nationally and internationally for over 30 years, collaborating with his wife, well-respected basket artist Dona, for over 25 years.

In February 2002, Ken survived a severe stroke which left him without the use of his right hand. Fortunately, Ken is left-handed and was encouraged by friends and colleagues to return to his studio. With new equipment and great determination, he continues to design and create 18K gold and sterling silver jewelry. The pieces often consist of an organic form joined with a construction of sheet gold to augment or oppose the shape or concept.
