Jessica Dow and Mark Anderson - Jewelry Gallery


#1

Different Seasons Jewelry is an artistic union between Jessica Dow’s organic Art Nouveau inspired designs and Mark Anderson’s clean, modern and elegant approach to jewelry and lapidary arts. Mark Anderson, a gemology student at G.I.A., specializes in fine, rare gemstones and he cuts the majority of gems used in Different Season’s jewelry. Mark is an accomplished silversmith and goldsmith who also works in platinum, palladium, gem carving, gem inlay and lost wax casting. Jessica Dow has studied sculpture and drawing and uses her love for nature, a meticulous eye for detail and her hand sketched designs to create beautiful artisan jewelry. Jessica and Mark combine their individual strengths and talents to form truly original works of wearable art.

This design features an Andamooka Matrix gem opal and a small faceted sapphire accent in a lovely shade of clear, bright blue. The Argentium silver setting was pierced, hand engraved and we topped off the design with hand knotted black freshwater pearls.



The pendant is inspired by the moonflower… a gorgeous night blooming flower related to the morning glory.
