Adorable Animal Jewelry Made Timeless With Silver And Bronze

Michael Tatom’s jewelry line “Of beasts and beauty” has been in the works for about 25 years: “I was mainly a jeweler, doing all the typical jewelry for a retail store. But on the side I was carving stone in my brother’s studio, doing smooth animal forms,” said Tatom to Bored Panda. “Eventually, I started doing them in bronze and many years later at the urging of my wife I applied that style to a jewelry line.

With every creation, Michael pushes his creativity to the limits, making the pieces beautiful from any angle you choose to admire it: “[it] has movement, every arc leading into another.

The artist uses animal photos for reference, but as he says himself: “Mostly I just go by feel, which drives my realist artist friends crazy,” and as you’ll see in a second, it works out more than fine.
