Patina Gallery is pleased to present the latest enchanting treasures from Northern California in an all-new exhibition by Petra Class.
Petra Class creates one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art, born from the interaction between tension and beauty. Her delectable menagerie of jewels has been the object of admiration for Patina collectors since the very beginning of the gallery’s soul-stirring works on West Palace Avenue.
Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings are wonderfully ornate, imagined in mosaics made of precious gemstones, set in handcrafted constructions of high karat gold.
The artist masterfully wills gold into exquisite shapes of intricacy and dynamism. From curved seed pods to detailed origami folds, her imagination is limitless as she utilizes natural riches to their highest degree.
She thrives in the playful combination of raw, uncut gems. Pairing their crystalline structures and shapes with an array of gems polished and cut, Class composes lively and memorable compositions. Beholding precious aquamarine, tourmaline, diamond, and lapis, among others, the artist crafts stories of the stones.
The melodious lure of her unparalleled jewels teases the senses in color, surface, and light–emanated in the abstract beauty she creates for the body.
