A respected dealer in mid-century art and antiques, Brian Nagourney has expanded into jewelry design. For his new collection, Brian has fashioned a unique line incorporating fresh-water pearls, macrame and semi-precious stones. The pearls are culled from the lakes and rivers of China, yielding lustrous, asymmetrical beads distinctive for their capricious details. Brian uses these pearls with their irregularities intact, combining them with coral or turquoise, strung on a contrasting black cord. The finished necklaces and bracelets realize Brian's stated goal to infuse traditional, "primitive" methods with a touch of the modern.
The result is jewelry that is one-of-a-kind and extremely versatile - flattering in any casual or semi-formal setting.
