Years ago, Tony's mother, herself an artist and printmaker, received as a gift a Victorian-era photograph of a woman with her long hair being held up. She made a series a prints with this photo, and Tony loved them. With the idea of a long-haired woman in mind, he created several versions of this figure himself, until he arrived at the present design: a woman's head with wavy hair in the shape of a water drop. The figure grew out of Tony's appreciation for the otherworldly women prominently featured in the art of the Pre-Raphaelites but also for the ornamental flourishes of Art Moderne (a style of Art Deco). Forever obsessed with custom Hot Rods and unusual hand built automobiles, he also thinks this motif would work perfectly as a hood ornament. There are few jewelers who are able to so successfully combine such radically different influences, from 19th century revivalist arts and crafts to the aesthetics of 20th century industrial design—and still find a way to make it personal. If it's the role of the artist to reveal details, connections, and possible worlds that you didn't notice before, the Drop Head or Printed Lady is one of our best examples of this work in action.
