The Classic Horse: Equestrian Jewelry

Zorka Pondell, Artist Statement:
Creating jewelry as a form of preferred artistic expression was an early decision in my life. This realization came to me the moment I created my first ring. I feel that jewelry, in current society, is one of the most distinctive, powerful forms of personal artistic expression. If one glimpses into the past and studies society’s choice of adornment, one can determine the style, wealth, innovation, and technical advancement of that society’s culture.

I think that good design has something I call “intent”. My pieces must be functional, beautiful and each element must be to the point. Curves must truly curve, and straight lines must be exactly that. The final equation, from a pure design sense, is to attain a lyrical and flowing quality.
