From Sea to Sculpture

    The Bernard K. Passman gallery on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, known for its artistic use of black coral, unveiled a collection of one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and a series of sculptures made of the organic material. The designs had been made over the past few years by artist Bernard Passman, who pioneered the use of black coral as a medium for sculpture and design some 30 years ago, and passed away in February 2007. He created bold bangles, necklaces, and rings in coral with gold and diamond accents (priced from about $10,000 to $60,000), but they were kept as part of his private collection until now. Among the distinctive pieces is his Wavebreaker black coral and gold cuff with 42 round brilliant-cut diamonds and three princess-cut diamonds (shown) for $37,000. (310.246.5150, www.passman.com)
