About the Artist:

I consider myself a contemporary sculptor utilizing unique gems and minerals set in precious metals.  I design and create all pieces, set all gemstones as well as fabricating, casting and polishing. The piece is dictated by the gemstone; the more unusual the better. Because I create mostly one-of-a kind pieces, my designs are constantly evolving and fresh.

Penoir Contemporary Jewelry, ( aka Penny ) creates on an ongoing basis, new & original, pieces of jewelry. Every piece  we make is made ONLY ONE TIME. I like to compare our original jewelry pieces with original paintings. An original Renoir contains the essence and spirit of the Master Painter; what he was trying to express through the medium of his art . You can buy a poster of his work, but his spirit is missing. Penny in the same way encapsulates a bit of her own spirit and essence in each of her pieces of jewelry.
