About

From the Kent Raible one of a kind 'Masterworks Collection' we have the 'Fire Spiral Pendant'. Made 100% by the artist himself. The center holds a 6.21ct. natural, untreated Fire Agate cut in a spiral. This is accented by eight 2.5mm Princess cut Mandarine Garnets weighing .96ct total, and Ruby Cabochons 1.78ct total weight. All this is set into 18 karat Gold with fine granulation detail. With the bale of the pendant opening, it will fit on any beads, chain, cord, etc. up to 5mm in diameter, no matter how large the clasp is. The secure bale snaps shut, with a safety which clasps over that. (Shown on Kent Raible's hand woven chain measuring 4mm outer diameter.) CHAIN SOLD SEPARATELY 12.1 grams 18k Gold Fire Agate 6.21ct Mandarine Garnet .96ct Ruby 1.78ct Kent Raible and his jewelry.... Unlike much “designer” jewelry made today, all jewelry work is done under Kent's direct supervision, with the majority of pieces made entirely by his hand. Beginning with the artist's vision and his sketch, every aspect of the work is done in his studio: alloying the metals, pouring ingots from molten gold, then rolling and drawing the sheet and wire stock used in fabrication, making of granules and small parts used to produce each of Kent's fabulously intricate pieces. All work is handmade in the USA. ​".... Kent's pieces are the quintessence of sumptuous jewelry. Using gold, precious and semi precious stones, he brings to mind a fantasy world of sultans, sheiks and palatial surroundings. Kent's work is glorious in that it has a fantastical quality. It alludes to a time of opulence, when intensive labor was an end in itself. There's a sumptuous, sparkling, magnificence to his work." ​ ​ - Kenneth Trapp, Former Curator, Smithsonian Institution, Renwick Gallery; National Museum of American Craft About Kent: "My life’s path is that of the goldsmith, a path of over 44 years now! To say I love my job would be an understatement! Because, in a world where few things endure, I am one of those who have chosen to celebrate that which defies the passage of time and the whims of fashion. ​My life's works draw deeply from the most ancient wells - the archetypes, symbols, and themes that have persisted for millennia. But in my hands, they take on and follow the lines of that singular, internal vision of the practiced artist - one who speaks his own language that somehow bridges the past, present, and future. My clients tend to call me a true Renaissance man. One could say, in fact, that the pieces I create are perfect time-traveling machines! Firmly rooted in ages-old tradition, each a conscious contributor to its own time, always with a keen and anticipatory eye on what might be next."
