The silver and lapidary work of Eugene Livingston and the attractive nature of Canyon Cassidy's Stone Mountain turquoise makes for an alluring combination. Eugene hand rolls the silver sheet and wire, and then crafts classic cluster work. Stone Mountain turquoise has excellent hardness, durability, and color, which is necessary to cut delicate stones. Eugene has fashioned each and every of the 57 pieces of turquoise in this bracelet. Eugene's bracelet is built to last, and Canyon's turquoise will add beauty and class through the ages.
Eugene is one of those rare artists who has mastered not just one or two methods, but a myriad of jewelry techniques. As a young man, he trained under other talented silversmiths After many decades of steady work, Eugene is skilled at metal fabrication, casting, making his own silver ingots, and most importantly for his work, the ability to cut stones. In his work below, you will see beautiful cut teardrop and pyramid cut Sleeping Beauty turquoise and coral. His two newest pieces with Carico Lake turquoise demonstrate his mastery of silver stamp work.
When discussing his work, Eugene talks about commitment. This theme comes up again and again with various artists with whom I have spoken. Eugene dedicated himself to his artwork and when you see him work, you truly realize the depth of his experience. He works as if he were breathing, naturally and seemingly effortlessly. We are fortunate to have such a skilled artist close by and hope you enjoy his classic creations.
