i. ronni kappos
I. Ronni Kappos jewelry is handmade from an evolving collection of vintage German glass. The beads were cast in the 1920's, 30's and 40's by craftsman whose meticulous techniques yielded unusual colors and shapes. Some of her rarer stock was dipped in 24 karat gold and then shaved to create an elegant gold trim around the bead. Ronni's design approach begins with a tremendous devotion to her materials. She values their history, yet designs with an eye for clean, modern shapes. Variations in the beads' color, and even slight imperfections, add character to the pieces. Most of Ronni's jewelry is strung on silk or nylon cord with 14 karat gold filled findings.
