Jewelry as miniature sculpture.
For over 25 years, american designer Dennis deJonghe has been an integral part of the creative atmosphere of artsy community of Saratoga Springs, NY, creating in his studio/gallery his unique jewelry and many private collectors in North America and Europe own deJonghe pieces. I really like his"one-of-a-kind" pieces, made as individual small sculptures with unusual gem stones set in platinum or gold.
About his work, Dennis says: “I took a jewelry course and it fell in love with me. Metal work offered a three-dimensional form and I began to view jewelry as miniature sculpture.
Jewellery Designer and Goldsmith.
I've started my career in São Paulo, Brazil, learning jewellery making with Bobby Stepanenko, then trained graphic design, gemology and chasing at Le Arte Orafe, in Florence, Italy, where I gained technical experience from local known jewellers and also had a workshop with Caroline Khuen von Belasi, offering customized art pieces. During my 8 years in London I continued creating jewellery and had my work shown in Italy, United Kingdom, Austria, France, Spain and Germany. After 13 years abroad, I set up my workshop of São Paulo, and currently offer consultancy and unique pieces for my local as well as international clientele. From March 2011 my new accessories line" Anna B." is available on-line @ http://annab.tanlup.com .
