Gregory Pyra Piro art jewelry designs are made in sterling silver and 14 karat gold, and the rings, pendants, earrings, brooches, and bracelets are mixed metal rather than just silver or gold. Most jewelry manufacturers, designers, and even artists today who work in gold and silver work in wax that produces molds for casting. And many silver jewelry artists, work with wire jewelry. Gregory's jewelry, not only that it is different, but it is made in a unique way. Some components are handmade with tools and some parts of the pieces are made with a torch. These are unique techniques that jewelry artists in Europe used to work with before many jewelry artists and jewelry designers have switched to wax work and casting. Though there are limitations to work with these techniques metals like white gold, it is possible to work with these techniques in sterling silver, yellow gold, and pink gold. But what is most important is that with the techniques which Gregory works with, it is only possible to make one of a kind jewelry.Follow Follow @Desartjewelry
Today glass jewelry may be popular among craft galleries, craft shops, in art jewelry or craft jewelry and craft artists. Fine jewelry is as always popular in sterling silver and solid gold. Piro mixes the two and creates his own design style. On this page there are a few pieces that are in sterling silver and 14 karat gold with pearls and gem stones and glass in each design piece. The glass is cut by the jewelry artist. The art jewelry designs by Piro with glass have a special unique mix of facet cut semi precious and facet cut precious stones where one can see amethyst, blue topaz, citrine, garnet, peridot, tourmaline, and small diamonds with glass. This is something of a unique feature in Piro art jewelry as the cut glass is often mixed with these gem stones. The cut glass in Piro art jewelry creates a nice effect that casts its own color light onto the sterling silver or gold part of the piece. When looking at any Piro pendants, rings, earrings, or bracelets that have the cut glass, the metal part may have a color tint when put under light because of the glass above it.
Note how green light from the green glass appears on the sterling silver metal near top of the ring right under the green glass top.Follow Follow @Desartjewelry
