The philosophy of Sacred Geometry informs the work of Fine Art Jeweler, Valerie Jo Coulson... 'the interconnectedness and inseparability of the part from the whole: Geometries are the archetypes of a universal language that describes the seen and unseen order of nature and the cosmos; relationship of form, movement, space and time...vibrations of perpetual energy.'

As student of the Fine Arts, I found my aspiration in transmuting the inner soul through metal and stone. Esthesia-sensation/feeling, arises from a spark in perception of... an event, a work of art, architecture, laws of nature/the cosmos, spirituality...and sometimes, a stone as in the story of The Gauntlet.
