Pamela Froman’s soulful expressions come through in brightly colored gemstones; her love of texture the result of a special technique she calls ‘crushed.’ With the firm belief that jewelry is more beautiful as it becomes part of a person’s essence, she designs extraordinary pieces that are handmade and one of a kind.
“I believe that the more a piece is worn, the more beautiful it is — because it becomes part of the person’s essence. Two people can wear the same piece and it will have a different look or give off a different aura.”
