Art Concrete Guest Gallery: Sue DormanNecklace:
Black concrete, 14k gold, 1.04-ct centre diamond and two .31-ct side quadrillion diamonds. 1984.
"I only like diamonds when they are in concrete," Los Angelese jeweller Sue Dorman was quoted as saying in a 1984 Ornament Magazine article. She started using the combination in 1975 as part of her Master's Thesis. As well as Ornament, her work has been featured in several other publications including Jeweler's Circular Keystone.
"Each year I make bigger pieces. When I decided to buy a one-carat diamond and put it in concrete, that was very exhilarating. The existence of this piece gives me a thrill."
