Because this item is handmade, it will vary slightly from the image shown.
Brian Watson created jewelry by sculpting sterling silver wire into unique shapes full of twists and bends. He uses additional elements to add interest to the silver design. Materials such as crystals, semiprecious stones, sterling and gold fill beads, and glass from the Czech Republic are scattered throughout each piece. Some are placed with precision and secured into place; others float freely.
Watson has not always been making jewelry. He started his adult life with some time in the service, followed by a short career as a banker. Eventually, he found a creative outlet through his work as a floral designer. He went on to own a floral and gift shop for over two decades.
Watson’s designs were influenced by his years interacting with customers and flowers. “People, like flowers come in many shapes, colors, and sizes,” he wrote. “My jewelry designs have that same concept. We are all equal, but we are not identical.”
