I was kinda blown away a couple of weeks ago when I had the pleasure of sitting down with sculptor/jeweler Trey Geary. While I had seen his jewelry in pictures, seeing the collection up close is a completely different thing. The depth, attention to detail and the um, how do I say… absolute cool factor will blow you away as well.
To start with, Trey sculpts each piece from old wood. So, each piece is one-of-a-kind and amazingly light weight. Imagine picking up an old piece of wood in the forest. We all know that it’s sometimes surprising how light such wood can be. It’s the same with this jewelry. To show you an example of how the jewelry is crafted from old wood, I took this picture which illustrates the point far better than my words:
Each piece requires so many steps to complete that more than a month is required from start to finish. Trey adds metals, turquoise, quartz and even opals to the wood as he crafts them into his wearable art:
He even makes rings:
His jewelry has already been spotted on Rascal Flatts, Jerrod Niemann, Brad Paisley, Crystal Shawanda, and Robin Roberts of ABC news. One of his biggest fans is none other than Kimberly Williams Paisley, one of our favorite celebs who lives locally and has amazing taste.
For now, his jewelry is available online, www.tgeary.com and by appointment.
