This half-hour professionally-made video documentary provides the viewer with a look into the life and art of Seattle artist, teacher, and world traveler Ron Ho.

His work is in the permanent collections of several museums, including the prestigious Houston Museum of Fine Arts Helen Williams Drutt Jewelry Collection and the Tacoma Art Museum Studio Art Jewelry Collection. An oral history of his life is also held at the Smithsonian Institution.

In 2006, the Bellevue Arts Museum honored his importance to the contemporary craft movement by presenting 51 of his pieces in an exhibition and catalog titled, Dim Sum at the On- On Tea Room – The Jewelry of Ron Ho. The Bellevue Arts Museum produced a catalog and exhibition of his jewelry.
