James describes his jewelry as being “based on two primary sources. One is the world of natural, texture, color and the organic. The second is creating figurative work that reflects the fun and whimsical side of [his] life.”
His one-of-a-kind pieces can feature rare, semi precious and hand picked stones. Along with those, his own etchings ornate most of his work creating intricate details. Some of his more whimsical pieces incorporate burnished bone and beading.
As a Midwestern native it is not uncommon to see James in the Epilogue gallery bringing new pieces or having a trunk show.
