It was a Christmas gift for my wife Floride in 1995 that started the jewelry collection. Now you can see it in 50 or so of the finest jewelry retailers in the U.S. and Canada.
Like my sculpture, each jewelry design is of or about a bird, and each starts with a piece of wood and a sharp blade. Some designs strive for a particular artistic element, while others emerge while a sculpture is in progress.
The newest items are the Narrow Feather Rings and Quail Octagon Pendant (with pearls!) and matching earrings. If you are new to the collection and not sure what to get, it is impossible to go wrong with the Wide Feather Earrings.
I'm fortunate to be the god father of 3 young (in their 20's) beautiful, talented, grounded god daughters. This necklace really resonated with me in both attractiveness and meaning, so I gave them each one recently and their responses have been really heart warming. "Stunning" "Incredibly beautiful" are some of the adjectives, plus one took a picture with the necklace on and texted it and one necklace arrived the day one god daughter could share that she was expecting her first child! How about that great news and "from above" timing!
I'm so grateful to be able to spread the beauty of Grainger's
work to my appreciative god daughters. Grainger deserves all the credit for his beautifully creative design that reminds us what is important to keep close and centered in our lives and in this case making me look like I know what I'm doing!
