Don't get me wrong. Silver jewelry is lovely and sterling silver a joy to work with.  However, the other metals like copper and brass offer much richer tones.  A master at combining these two metals is the Chris Anderson whose jewelry I first spotted on Jewelspan.


He says of his process, " I design jewelry sets by sketching over long hours and as the various drawings emerge before me I am always drawn to familiar constructions. I therefore try to look for newness within these shapes, forms and ideas that haunt my work."

The investment all pays off as his contemporary designs show a successful and gorgeous transition from natural inspirations to finished jewelry.  Chris is based in Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean which explains where some of his inspirations come from.

I also like his Monstera design which is based on the large houseplant sometimes known as the Swiss cheese plant.

His global collection is also delightful particularly this one :

Chris is a shining example of how beautiful jewelry can be when two different metals are put together in original ways.
