Sculptured Gem Jewelry



 
 


 

SATYRS & GARGOYLES”,

From the theme series
“Satyrs & Gargoyles”

A very heavy, hinged,
18K yellow & white gold pendant
with two carved Larimar gems,
( Dominican Republic)
73 + 77.5 cts = 150.5 cts total weight.
 Two oval-cut Blue Sapphires (Montana)
.65+.69 cts = 1.34 cts total weight.
Two rectangular Pink Tourmalines (Brazil)
1.59 + 1.57 cts= 3.16 carats total weight.

The "Satyrs & Gargoyles" theme
allows for dynamic expressionism,
infinite variations, and exaggerated features.
The distorted features emit
demonic pathos and induce awe.
In classic Greek mythology Satyrs were sylvan gods,
the male followers of Dionysos, the god of wine,
and they are represented as part man and part goat,
usually having short, sprouting horns on their heads.
Gargoyles represent grotesque human or animal figures.
