Nicholas Varney

    Nicholas Varney approaches jewelry design and creation more like an artist than a jeweler. He collects various stones, more for color and form than value, and builds artistic expressions of plants, sea life, and abstract designs. Signature Style: Expect the unexpected from Varney, who uses large, unusual-shape freshwater pearls, bulbous fire opals, and vivid green tsavorite among other exotic gems in designs. “In art, you have to continue to change your medium,” he says about his constant search for different stones and elements. “An artist should not be restricted by his medium.”
