Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels NY 2019

Mendocino Poppy Project by Tom Herman and Patsy Croft

 

Tom Herman and I met on our path as jewelers early in 2000. In our journey of studying the masters of the past, we fell in love with the Ada brooch, realized that magnificent jewels in their time were not created by one artist.

 

With our passion for this jewel strong at heart, we were invited to teach a Master Jeweler’s Program at the Mendocino Art Center. The idea was to teach jointly, Tom chasing and saw piercing, and I plique a jour enameling in our first week, afterward, we’d have open studio time for students while we worked together to create a jewel.

 

For all of these reasons, the Matilija Poppy proved to be the perfect muse for a budding project conceived in 2015, The collaborating on a jewel, would be auctioned to benefit the Mendocino Art Center.
