J Rudy Lewis: Jewelry
J. Rudy Lewis considers making jewelry “more exciting than any other form of art.” Lewis’s zeal for the medium shows in his metal pieces, which are full of life. Nature’s balance and symmetry is a common theme in Lewis’ jewelry work, incorporating only the methods and techniques that befit the master craftsman’s individual story like hand forging, wax carving and repousse. Lewis selectively draws upon materials appropriate to the story he has to tell: like gold of different colors, sterling silver, rough diamonds, baroque pearls, and dinosaur bones. As of late, the artist has started to incorporate aged leather into his metal work saying “I love how it accentuates the age, history and story I am bringing into my work.” Lewis’ intimate creative process begins at his workbench. An idea for a new piece can come from a recently completed piece, the materials he is interested in, or a prevailing idea he has.
The jewelry ranges from cuffs to necklaces to cuff links and is not bound by gender or age. For the last decade, Lewis’s work has been exclusively one-of-a-kind pieces crafted with the individual in mind. J Rudy Lewis customers are as strong, unique and diverse as his artistry. Currently his jewelry can be seen on the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Queen Ameerah Al-Taweel of Saudi Arabia.
