In the jewelry world, there’s nothing more special than to hear the praise of your fellow jewelry designers. Trend setter and innovative artist that he is, Etienne would be lying if he tried to deny that, over the years he has acquired quite the following, both from the ranks of educated jewelry consumers and his designer peers.
Regardless, it is still heartwarming when Etienne receives the type of remark that shows just how important his career and inspirational colored diamond designs have been in developing another artist’s own style and path.
37 years still loving what I do and supporting myself with it.
Making necklaces, rings with stones, enamels, different metals, and new textures.
Calder for his abandon and passion. Daniel Brush for his alchemy. Andy Goldsworthy for his exploration into “what if.”
Michael Good, Etienne Perret, Robert Lee Morris, Alexander Calder, and Steven Kretchmer.
The ebb and flow of life, stones, nature, the middle East, Buddhism, having an idea and running with it.
Soldering, texturing, and handling the Stones.
While Julie has clearly followed her heart and taken her own, special path in the jewelry world, creating beautiful pendants with large semi-precious minerals set in sterling silver and gold and finished with exciting patinas, it is nice to know that Etienne’s designs made an impact on her development as a unique and talented artist.
