Elizabeth & Jack Gualtieri
In our studio we create jewels featuring the ancient technique of granulation. We are not content to merely reinterpret the past; we are dedicated to bringing a modern spirit to an age-old technique, both in our designs and in our craft. Entirely hand fabricated, each one of a kind piece is a highly detailed work in miniature imbued with the geometries of the natural world. It all starts with the language of spheres. They speak in texture, patterns, shadows and light. We manipulate them, yet they are our meditation as well as our craft. Seventeen different sizes of granules are individually created in our studio, mostly in the traditional 22kt yellow gold, but also in our custom 22kt white and rose gold alloys as well as in platinum. The most recent addition to our work combines forged and oxidized sterling silver with granulated 22kt yellow gold elements.
