About the artist
David R Freeland Jr
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 steward- ship, David has created an exciting new line of jewelry featuring beautiful butterflies. It is his hope that The Butterfly Collection will serve as a reminder of how important it is to protect and save our precious environment.
David has spent more than 45 years perfecting his craft and creating unique collections of jewelry and art that include his highly collectable Silver Kachina Dolls, beautifully inlaid collectable beads, pop culture inspired designs, fine jewelry, and a multitude of one of a kind custom designed pieces.
