This artist is a true renaissance man: painter, carver, teacher, activist, as well as fabulous, award-winning jeweler.
His jewelry trademark is elegant simplicity, using meticulous technique and exceptional stones, as shown here.
Beautifully rounded and polished silver is the tapered base for an opulent inlay of hand cut, natural turquoise rectangles.
The stones are graduated in size, following the narrowing shape of the silver cuff.
Dark charcoal matrix, in the robin’s egg blue of the natural, Tibetan turquoise, creates a striking contrast that is its own decoration.
A nicely creative touch of is the placement of three horizontal stones, just off center.
The middle stone is a bit higher and rounder than the other two, which adds a subtle increase of gleam to the stones, and almost subliminal visual interest.
As always, Roger’s workmanship is flawless, whether in the beautifully finished silver, or the individually cut and set stones – all done by hand, naturally.
This fascinating, beautiful cuff is suitable for all occasion, from t-shirt time to tea-time.
A timeless, neo-classic bracelet that can – and will – be worn often, and proudly.
