With an artist’s eye and a craftsman’s touch, David R. Freeland Jr’s jewelry designs are handcrafted from the finest high quality gemstones found in his travels. Using lapidary techniques, each stone is carefully cut to bring out its natural beauty and is meticulously inlaid by hand, taking extra time to ensure the finest handmade quality. His use of unconventional shapes, textures and proportions create distinctive one of a kind designs. David’s work is bold, traditional, and elegant with a contemporary appeal.
David’s passion for jewelry design began in his youth drawing inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of the Southwest and his father who traded with Native American craftsmen. He draws much of his inspiration from nature and is committed to supporting ecological projects.
Driven by his passion for environmental stewardship, David has created an exciting new line of jewelry featuring beautiful sea life scenes. It is his hope that The Sea Life Collection will serve as a reminder of how important it is to protect and save our precious oceans.
David has spent more than 35 years perfecting his craft and creating unique collections of jewelry and art that include his highly collectable Silver Kachina Dolls, beautifully inlaid collectable beads, southwestern inspired designs, fine jewelry, and a multitude of one of a kind custom designed pieces. His masterful jewelry work includes a selection of the highest quality opal with diamonds, tanzanite, sapphires, tourmalines, and rubies set in 18k gold and platinum.
David’s work goes beyond the physical…it touches your soul.
