I don't think it's all that unusual for a jeweler to not be donned in his or her own jewelry or any at all, as I am one of those kind. Though an avid collector indeed I am... Oh yes, if you're good perhaps one day I'll do a show and tell.
But here's an insight to one which I may be collecting from very soon by Johnny Nino – a teacher of metal sculpture by day and a jeweler by night. Everything is hand fabricated from scratch with attention to detail and care needless to say; from the jewelry down to the boxes in which they come in, individually hand crafted from reclaimed wood. Other found materials are sometimes used... from pebbles, Ostrich egg to walnut shells etc! All very sleek, sexy, yet organic and above all eco-friendly.
