Charles Krypell: Charles Krypell started out by pursuing a career as a sculpture artist working primarily in large scale stone, but soon he found himself drawn to jewelry as a means to create tiny sculptures. By 1976 he launched his first collection and gained immediate acclaim which has garnered him a loyal following. The one time sculptor continues to create miniature works of art in every piece of jewelry.
