Artisan David Urso Organic Resin Sterling Silver Brooch

David Urso's highly sophisticated handcrafted jewelry is a visual feast of color, form and surface. The jewelry is characterized by sensual organic shapes and a painterly use of hand tinted resins, which are applied in solids and patterns. This late 1980's modernist piece is color blocked, divided by a sterling cross with an oval border of alternating black and cream colored resins. It measures 1.5" inches tall X 2.25" inches wide. Back is hallmarked "URSO" and "STERLING". Excellent condition. Using a sterling brooch converter (I have them in stock for purchase), you can wear this striking brooch as a pendant on a chain!

Urso's classic signature collection is created by experimenting with natural herbs and spices such as poppy seed, expresso and dill. He uses the dried minced plants as pigment, sometimes combining them with pastels, and mixing them directly into clear resin. The resulting color range is vibrant, earthy and beautifully textured. He hand makes each of his pieces in his Ulster County, New York studio.
