Petra Class & Siedra Loeffler

San Francisco, CA

My work is created in 22 and 18 karat gold. I use gemstones to emphasize my love for color and like to play with combinations of cut and rough stones, often limiting myself to a single color family. Lately, I found myself working with monochrome minimalist designs cutting stones in a way that leaves the rough surface partially intact or slicing bigger gems and using the geometric elements that present themselves. My intention is to make work that seduces and attracts the eye; pieces that fulfill the ancient human need for adornment. I use materials perceived as precious to invoke the eternal awe for the beauty nature brings forth.
