Pinckney Simons Simons
Beaufort, South Carolina. USA

I have been designing fine jewelry for the past two years. Each
piece is truly one-of-a-kind. The fine silver and 14kt gold are
meticulously manipulated and sculpted by hand-forging. I do have a
bit of fixation with my ever-growing collection of minerals,
crystals, gemstones and especially artifacts. Each one provides an
inspiration all of its own, ultimately dictating the formation and
overall design. As part of the creative process, I never know how the
piece will look upon completion. For me, this is somewhat of an
impulsive process, with only a vague sense of direction and
undoubtedly many twists and turns along the way (no pun intended). I
take great pride in the uniqueness of my work, not to mention the
overall functionality and presentation. All of my works are
lightweight and form-fitted for the individual.
