Katherine Goulandris & Michael Burris
We employ traditional fabrication methods using sterling silver, 22k and 18k gold. We hand solder, hand finish/polish and utilize some patination techniques. To set our facet cut gems we like tube settings and for the naturally cut stones we use the bezel setting style. Our signature necklaces are kinetic, adjustable and sculptural. All designs are our own. We work together because the process of jewelry making is for us collaborative. Something special happens which sharpens the relationship to our art. Our intention from the beginning has not only been to make jewelry for adornment, but instead to try and step out of the box of what is expected and make designs which surprise our audience with something new or innovative and in this way invite them into the creative process.
