Drawing, Study in Color and Form, 2016
Gentille considers each piece of jewelry as a one-off, and purposely dates it by the century in which it was made. His work is rightly celebrated as much for his emphasis on materials and process as for the striking aesthetic impact. To that end, his jewelry design drawings shed light on this important aspect of his practice.
