Working in 14 and 18 carat gold, precious and semi-precious stones and gems, Barry specializes in hand piercing and stone inlay work to create pendants, rings, bracelets and earrings, primarily one-of-a-kind.
After carefully cutting a piece of gold into a design as realistic and complex in detail as possible, inlays are cut and fitted exactly into the open cells of the pierced gold. The aim of the inlays is to use natural elements to transform precious metal and stone into ‘paintings’.
Although the work has a relationship to the general style of the Victorian and Art Nouveau eras, his concepts and designs make the pieces definitely contemporary objects d’art. Many private collectors in Canada and the United States enjoy his work.
