Panther's Gallery: Where Jewelry and Art Live as One
"The Artist Panther Brunotte is a Multimedia Master Jeweler. Each piece is one of a kind, and individually executed and designed. Boundless to the rules of fashion, or restraints of tradition, we relish the fruits of her courage of unconventional choice. A true renaissance woman, Her work and mind, has time and time again been compared to the likes of Dali and Michelangelo. She is an innovator; spinning her artist skills of painting, sculpting, charcoal, with her craftswoman skills of metal, resins and sealants, into a visual song."
Inspiration for Design Comes From the Heart
In my jewelry line, my perspective is intuition. I know what appeals to me. This empowered me to look in the direction of the Ancient and Old World techniques. Therefore, all of my silversmithing is done, one at a time, and by hand. I do not work with molds. After a pieces fired, I individually study them for formation and direction. Once I determine the type of jewelry it will be, the shapes are further manipulated and filed, into finished pieces that fulfill the artistic composition. It is at this point of the process, that I switch into my Artist Mode. Here is where my many years as a Painter, determining the choice of medium, color palette, subject, design, and balance between positive and negative space; gives me the expertise to choose the placement, colors and content of the crystals, gems, and exotic materials, to enable an intricate, well balanced design.
