Whether he’s demonstrating decorative techniques to students or transforming our front window displays, John is a veritable magician when it comes to conjuring exquisite wonders out of simple materials. His latest creations include the Dresden Jewels, wearable gothic art with nods toward fantasy and myth.
The Dresden Jewels collection includes necklaces, brooches, and other pieces that combine gilded paper trim with real gemstones and findings. These elegant one-of-a-kind works are highly sought after by collectors, and their delicate beauty must be seen to be believed.
