Luce Artist Biography

Kent Raible values the geometry and symmetry of gemstones and gold granules, two materials that are prominent in his work. When designing a piece of jewelry, he generally begins with a special gem, around which he constructs a "unique golden world" to reflect and enhance the light and form of the stone. Granulation, the ancient technique of attaching gold granules without solder, is not often used by contemporary jewelers and stands out as a distinctive element in Raible's jewelry.
