Mr. Cleland is a scientist with a creative twist, and a jeweler of over thirty years. His inspiration comes from his life experiences and his degrees in the bio sciences and geology. “This ongoing interest reflects my attention to jewelry construction and the support structure of my designs; my passion for natural designs is constantly regenerated,” says Mr. Cleland. Recently he has been combining his natural design elements with historic Japanese symbolism to create contemporary jewelry with traditional images. He utilizes his classical training in hand engraving arts, classical Itallian reposse’, and fine detail piercing and stone setting.
Mr. Cleland’s natural designs incorporate contemporary jewelry with traditional images creating one-of-a-kind pieces, many with moving elements and ‘storytelling.’
