Jewelers that inspire me.

These 4 pieces were done by Bruce Metcalf, Im guessing they are hand carved, painted and gold leafed. I think they are pretty amazing . They are sensuous and whimsical, they quietly explode with beauty and a mysterious seductive quality. I've followed Bruces' work and writing for years. He is so intelligent, any one in the field should pay attention to his writing. His work has always had a distinct character about it, some weird, some disturbing, but these works of art seem to speak a visual ecstasy of beauty.
