Of the Moment: Kenneth Johnson
We are pleased to present a beautiful new collection by local artist Kenneth Johnson. Johnson has been making jewelry for over two decades, and the precision and finesse of his metalwork is apparent in every piece he produces. While he works in a wide variety of precious materials, this current collection focuses on 18k gold and one exquisite piece wrought in sterling silver.
Johnsons’ jewelry pays homage to his Muscogee and Seminole heritage with his design, drawing inspiration from Seminole patchwork and Southeast style concentric line work. Understated and unusual, the cast pieces in this collection are resplendent with 18k gold and sapphires, while the large gold chain has been painstakingly handwoven. For the avid pool player, there is a real gem in the hand stamped chalk holder, a true collectors item.
