Sterling silver, 14K yellow gold, enamel, semi precious stones, abalone
Earl Pardon’s colorful palette is pure opulence in this brooch. A mosaic of kiln-fired enamel tiles in cobalt blue, purple, teal, and orange juxtaposed with high karat gold and abalone imbue this arc shaped plane.
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.
