The article profiles jeweler Ken Loeber. Through the influence of Mary Tingle, he became interested in shell jewelry making. His subjects are mostly shells and metals. His ideas are made on a sketch pad and are worked out on a collage using bits of gold or silver foil and paper. It notes that the fragility and fluidity of materials must be preserved and must be strong enough to be worn.
