Brooke Stone & Jim Clement

Brooke Stone & Co.

"Our art grows out of our deep appreciation for nature & its processes. Animals of the wild have worked their way into our lives through legend, myth & symbol, connecting us to the Sacred Environment, reminding us of our mutual tie with the earth and our interdependence with all other life-forms."

"People ask me what my jewelry means. I tell them the idea is very simple. Each piece of jewelry tells a story about an animal. Each story describes the animal's place in its environment, its place in the great wheel-of-life, or its meaning to us as humans through mythological imagery. Each charm represents an element in the animal's eco-system." (view more Brooke Stone jewelry)

How is the jewelry made?

"Fine materials, precise workmanship, scrupulous attention to detail, & imaginative composition of natural & animal world imagery. These are the signature features of all Brooke Stone & Co. jewelry."

Brooke Stone & Jim Clement combine several processes to make their jewelry: "the base-building process for most pieces is the ancient metal art of lost wax casting."

"A wax model is carved & encased in a mold. In a kiln the mold is slowly brought up to a read heat, evaporating the wax & leaving the mold's impression inside. Molten metal is injected into the cavity by centrifuging. Each piece is individually "cleaned." A series of hand-grinding & hand-polishing processes preserve fine detail & texture. Then metal fabrication (shaping & fastening metal directly) is used for compositional additions."

"Gold, silver, bronze & copper (both cast & fabricated), wire and stone are incorporated into the work as well as a variety of organic materials such as wood, bone, fossil tooth, horn & shell. Brooke cuts her own stones from her native Oregon jaspers & agates, along with rocks from all over the world."

"Everythings comes together perfectly to give this jewelry a special patina of visual richness and meaning."
