Llyn Strong – Llyn Strong Fine Jewelry, United States
The inspiration for the Temple Ruins ring is ancient Greek and Roman architecture, especially the Corinthian order. Evident are the crumbling columns and pediments surrounding the bicolor tourmaline stone. The designer aspires to create art which enriches reciprocal understanding.
Llyn explains, «There is something magical about the act of creation: by making things, we both understand and express ourselves. My work embraces materials, techniques and traditions of both the ancient and the recent past, but explores forms and uses relevant to the present and the future.»
