The green jasper and the buttery colored pearls set up a warm, gentle interplay between the creamy sheen of both. I've never before now used this description about anything but food, but this combination is "delicious!"
I watch my gemstones until I see relationships between their surface textures, colors and contours; I then create designs which maximize an interplay between stones and metal. It is really quite an organic process, primarily inspired by the stones themselves.
Most of my jewelry designs are quite functional as casual or formal pieces. My wife wears them with jeans, suits or dresses.
