Earrings, Federico, Cluster, Opal & Picture Jasper, Hallmark, Contemporary, 1548

 

COMPLEMENTARY COLORS FOR A CLASSIC CLUSTER

Frederico Jimenez has a reputation for bold Southwestern cluster work which is exemplified in these dangling earrings. Each of the clusters features a large oval shaped picture jasper stone set in a simple bezel. Surrounding the center stone is a ring of matching simple bezel set stones of various shades of orange opal. The colors are complementary and come together perfectly for a classic cluster pair of earrings bursting with beautiful stones.

Born in 1941, jewelry artisan Federico Jimenez has long had an appreciation for Native American culture and craftsmanship. Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, Federico came to the United States in 1967 to work and go to school, where he studied jewelry making and design. In 1970, he and his wife Ellen Belber Jimenez traveled throughout the Southwest, where they first fell in love with the Native American and southwestern aesthetic. They became connoisseurs of folk art, and amassed a collection of Native American, Latin American, and Mexican antiques, jewelry, and housewares, opening a series of galleries in southern California. Formerly a trustee of the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos, and The Southwest Indian Museum in Los Angeles, Federico now resides in Venice, California, where his primary focus is designing his jewelry.
