TURQUOISE TORTOISE GALLERY CELEBRATES
1st Friday Gallery Tour: "Synthesis: Leo Feeney Fine Jewelry"
June 3, 2016 Artist Reception, 5-8 PM
In Sedona, Arizona Turquoise Tortoise Gallery welcomes Master Jeweler Leo Feeney to a showcase for his uniquely styled fine jewelry. Visitors will be able to meet the gifted artist and ask questions about his inventive stone combinations and designs.
What makes the Native American influenced jewelry designs by Leo Feeney stand apart is his frequent mixture of opaque, semi-precious and precious stones to create what has become a signature style. While turquoise, both blue and green, frequently figures in his intricate cluster designs set in sterling silver, a Leo Feeney piece may be composed of gaspeite, spiny oyster, red coral and/or peridot, garnet, amethyst, citrine, topaz, or any number of other stones.
“There is such variation in individual stones that when you get them laid out, certain stones are just drawn together,” Leo Feeney notes. Working from the center out, Leo Feeney determines the right blend of stones and the size of each new design before he can begin his silver work. Completed designs that are already popular can always be special ordered with each new combination of stones creating a wholly original work of art. Every Leo Feeney piece is touched with the smallest of fine details.
“Synthesis: Leo Feeney Fine Jewelry” at Turquoise Tortoise Gallery runs through June 12.
