Bindu Jewelry

by Candace Stolley
btrflyBindu Jewelry, a collection of masterpieces, is the culminating work of 4 decades creative endeavor of artist jeweler Candace Stolley.  This unique art jewelry was developed through years of intensive experimentation and by the artist allowing her creativity to unfold by internal inspiration.

From 1966 the artist worked primarily in welded bronze because of the creative freedom this medium gave her. In 1991 Stolley spent a year on retreat at the Hermitage Ashram in Fiji of the the world renown Teacher, Samraj Adi Da. Shortly thereafter she noticed a great deepening in her creative process and a heightened sensitivity to every element of her jewelry design. This spontaneous refinement of her artistic sensitivity called for refined materials, new techniques and an intensely transformative process.

The resulting metamorphosis of Bindu Jewelry that you see here is crowned with precious metals and every kind of beautiful gem. But in the eyes of history Bindu Jewelry’s greatest achievement will probably be its mastery of unique welded bronze jewelry techniques Stolley began to develop in the late ’60’s, exploring these exhaustively for 4 decades. Now after 40 + years the artistry of Bindu Jewelry’s Bronze Collection stands unsurpassed in the world.

Bindu Jewelry (precious metals) was featured in ORNAMENT magazine, America’s top art jewelry magazine, Fall 1997.

Artist’s Statement

It is no mental or verbal abstraction, this tangible energy that pulses from heart to hand and into my art work.  My participation with this energy is the essence of my creative process. While working I constantly feel with my heart toward this energy or spirit, this feeling of love and beauty. What I choose at each step of my creation is based on what resonates in my heart. I choose what magnifies the energy of love there, thus allowing love to guide my creative choices. It is an ecstatic process. My art work is the visible language of my being.
