New photos! Johnny’s Barnacle Rings.
Find ‘em here.
Johnny has a show coming up on Saturday, August 4th at Love & Luxe (more on that to come later). In the meantime, here’s a small taste of his latest!
You can follow updates over on his Flickr.
Fresh from the Studio
Johnny’s been logging many hours at the bench these past couple weeks. He started a new series using a combination of steel and yellow gold, which he used for the earrings in the photos above. The gold ring in the center photo is one of my all-time faves. The textural nugget was made using a left over sprue button from a previous casting. I love the way it looks when stacked with a diamond: the organic quality really takes off when next to a tightly crafted set stone (conflict-free, of course).
Another new addition are the wax bezels Johnny has been milling with his new-old lathe. These thicker, more substance filled stone holders are completely custom and uniquely built for each stone. Expect to see a handful of new rings sporting these one of a kind bezels soon!
