Tom Blicher has designed jewelry in his own workshop since 1992.
His inspiration comes from organic forms and movements and the lines found there. Those lines are often reflected in Tom's jewelry. He describes his creative process thus: I design my jewelry so that they are little sculptures in themselves. In my mind I see them as large sculptures on solid ground.
Their lines and movements must support this magnification in order to appear complete in my eyes.
He stands in his round greenhouse and looks like a happy Buddha. Over his head hangs a Balinese goddess with bare breasts and a wry smile and around him is a lush patchwork of olive trees, banana trees and flowering water hyacinths. Tom is in his element.
