This time of year is perfect for cycling around town to visit the Farmer’s Market, the many Boulder breweries or ride to work. Others like to ride up into the mountains for fun and fitness with friends or as a personal challenge. Whatever your motivation, you need an amazing decoration to go with your hobby (obsession) and we have just the right reminder of the fond memories of your cycling adventures.
The artists at Seeka start with a precision cut stainless steel frame for each jewelry creation. Within this frame, the design is hand painted with acrylics, metallic and other paints. A variety of materials from metals and glass to dyed seeds and found objects are assembled within.
Semi-precious stones, and Swarovski crystals are embedded and a thick layer of acrylic resin is poured to encase and protect the finished piece.
At Boulder Arts & Crafts Gallery, we embrace the current trend of gemstones showcased with organic shapes and natural textures.
Bruce Iden, master of the cabochon, selects and shapes his stones to perfection then places them in simple silver or gold settings, designed to emphasize the individual stones’ best qualities.
