"Turning seemingly non-plastic elements into a fluid lively piece of art is truly stimulating"
Biography: Master jewelry designer, sculptor and visual artist, James has been designing and manufacturing fine jewelry pieces for publicly high profile individuals and select clients of internationally distinguished retail establishments for over 15 years. James began his passion for fine jewelry while a young boy growing up in Alaska. The son of a geologist, James has an instinctual fascination and reaction for unique gems and minerals. Shortly after finishing his Fine Arts degree in printmaking lithography, from Arizona State University he was employed as an auctioneer with The Fine Arts Gallery of Scottsdale. Jamesí initial sculpting work was working in art nouveau bronze figures for La Tulip Gallery in Los Angeles. After relocating to New York City, the origin of his jewelry designing development began while working in the wholesale Diamond District on 47th Street. James' work embodies a classically European approach with a decidedly modern element. Many of his designs are inspired by the beautiful elements of nature. To imagine the finished piece and then see it born into a three-dimension form inspires his motivation.
