Carlton is one of several contemporary jewelers who have gone far beyond the usual lapidary work that once characterized Zuni jewelry. In his latest pieces, he has forsaken stones altogether, in favor of intricate, technically demanding chase work on silver. As seen here, this technique – new to him – is just as expertly fabricated and designed as his other work.Feathery swirls are carved into the silver, which is then cut out all hand-to-eye. The graceful design is as ornate as a Louis XV chandelier; elegant, flirty, and delicious. The amazing silver work has created a luxurious, delicately dramatic earring that will embellish a tee-shirt as beautifully as a cocktail dress. Different, comfortable, versatile, and beautiful; a masterful achievement in every way..
