For the Love of Wood

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

I love natural organic materials in jewelry, and my favorite is the use of wood. Many jewelry houses have used a wide variety of woods– African Ebony, or Rosewood, or Cocobolo.  There is a long list of designers who use wood– Van Cleef & Arpels Clematis brooch, Verdura’s curb link bracelet, Trianon’s cuffs, and Spratling worked in rosewood and sterling and silver.

My favorite book on natural materials in jewelry is by Ruth Peltason:
