Sterling silver, 14K & 22K yellow gold, enamel, semi precious stones
Earl Pardon’s colorful palette is pure opulence in this brooch. A collage of kiln-fired enamel tiles in cobalt blue, oranges and reds, juxtaposed with high karat gold, imbue movement on this irregular shaped plane. In the center of the piece, semi-precious stones glisten with every movement on its wearer. Sterling silver along the perimeter finishes this work of art with pure brilliance, embracing a modernist feel.
Pardon belongs to the first generation of jewelers and metalsmiths who spawned the studio jewelry movement in America. While trained as a painter at The Memphis Academy of Art, where his education and ambitions were caught up in the traditions of that discipline, even as a student, he was fascinated by jewelry making and its expressive potential.
