of Seven Fingers Studio (17 Images)
since he was a boy, Tom Herman has been an artist. In 1982, he
channeled his artistic talents into his new business, Seven Fingers
Jewelers, named for his own handprint after having lost three fingers
as a child in a Minnesota farming accident. Over the last 30 years,
Tom has become a master jewelry maker, renowned for his talents at
working with precious stones, metal carving, and unique designs.
Tom's timeless pieces are inspired by organic forms and geometric
balance. In designs that centerpiece precious stones, Tom begins by
searching through piles of opals, agates, or other precious materials
to find unique stones that, in his words, "are able to take on a
greater meaning". With this vision, Tom cuts each stone and frames it
in a way to bring out its natural beauty. Not all Tom's pieces focus
on precious stones; his precious metal carving is spectacular enough
to stand alone. Some of his most popular carvings, including laurel,
oak, and ginkgo leaves, have been rendered in earrings, rings,
cufflinks, brooches, and bracelets. Throughout his work, Tom has
cultivated his talents and created pieces of art that will be worn
and admired for many generations to come.
