La Quinta Arts Foundation Blog
In February of 2017, the La Quinta Arts Foundation featured Adam Neeley in a blog article entitled “Cutting Edge and Timeless- Adam Neeley.” In this interview, Adam shares insight into his jewelry-making techniques and technologies, and discusses his development as an artist.
“I find inspiration from the angles of a crystal or the shape of a natural shell. I create a modern interpretation of something from nature. I often design the focal point of the gemstone. My goal is to create something unique, visually exciting and with balance. Because it’s jewelry, it must fit nicely. I also use asymmetry in the composition, and develop works that create movement in the piece.”
From his Laguna Beach studio, designer and goldsmith Adam Neeley pushes the boundaries of modern jewelry design. His award-winning jewelry is celebrated by jewelry industry authorities, collectors, and the Smithsonian Institution. We invite you to learn more by visiting our About Adam and Welcome pages.
