Decorous in size and shape, these earrings nevertheless exemplify the innovation, precision and true uniqueness of Eugene’s work.
Trained as an architectural draughtsman, the artist first makes scale drawings of each piece.
Meticulously, every element, however small, is fabricated by hand from scratch.
The various elements of the design stand out from the darkened silver background.
Warm gold, polished and matte; gleaming silver, and the rich tones of turquoise, natural red coral and lapis seem to float above the slightly rounded, dark surface like magical spaceships or extraterrestrial moons.
One of the most perfectionistic jewelers around, this artist produces only a handful of pieces; you are in a very exclusive group when you own a piece by L. Eugene Nelson!
