Lyle Sopel

Sopel directs his focus towards creating works of art that reflect tactile lines and undulating forms found in nature and our natural environment, and mastering materials that are harder than steel. Working with jade, tiger-eye, quartz-crystal, amethyst, lapis lazuli, rubies, sapphires, diamonds and gold and silver precious metals, each of his rare and distinctive pieces emanates a museum caliber presence.
