Steven Battelle

Steven Battelle has followed a singular, somewhat circuitous route to his current incarnation as a designer of unique treasures of wearable art. Drawn particularly to cabochon (un-faceted) stones, with which the first jewelry from all the ancient cultures of Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Asia was made, Steven handpicks unusual precious and semiprecious stones that often carry with them some manner of inherent imperfections. The natural characteristics of the stone become a part of the feeling and energy of the piece. In partnership with his Balinese artisans, utilizing both painstaking traditional handmade techniques and current processes, he has developed a line of jewelry that melds these ancient motifs into objects of functional and timeless beauty.
