This post is thanks to a recommendation by fellow blogger, artist Paula Lewis of Scorched Eyebrow Studio. She wrote: “I was on the committee who reviewed [this artist’s] work for acceptance as a Master Artisan of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, and we were all knocked out by him. The architectural feel and the precision craftsmanship are special.”

My readers have always turned me onto wonderful things, so I had high hopes when I clicked on the link Paula posted, and I was not disappointed. Behold the gorgeous 3-dimensional jewelry by E. Douglas Wunder.

“When designing jewelry, I incorporate geometric influences of human and naturally made objects. These combined visual patterns and shapes help stimulate the creative process. The end results are graphic representations of sweeping curves, upward perspectives and overlapping alignments in detail. The goal is to establish images in miniature that go beyond the mundane and predictable which establishes a unique vision.” -E. Douglas Wunder

He works with mixes of metals, both precious and non, using a combination of hand cutting and laser cutting. He layers slim pieces of metal and spacers, wiring them together, creating shapes and spaces and mesh-like constructions. His resulting three-dimensional works of wearable art are nothing short of stunning, and his process is really cool. His pieces can be purchased on his website.

  1. Great pieces. They make me think of costume and set design for Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
