Designer Profile - Lou Zeldis

Lou Zeldis is a wholly original Jewelry artist. Much of his inspiration is drawn from his time living in Bali. He is not a classically trained designer and is unconstrained by convention: his vision is unadulterated and purely his own. his methods are eccentric and his materials eclectic. His pieces are made of water buffalo horn, lapis from Afghanistan, ancient quartz “coins” from Africa, beach pebbles, shells, sterling silver and bronze. His pieces give a contradictory impression; they seem both ancient and sacred, while being cutting edge and irreverent. His craftsmanship is both meticulous and precise in contrast to the often rough stones and blunt objects found in his pieces.
