Recognized internationally for a lifetime of contributions to the field of art jewelry, Thomas Gentille was the first American artist to be designated by the distinguished Munich-based annual art jewelry fair, Schmuck, a Modern Master (Klassiker der Moderne).
Gentille has continually invented new processes to manipulate a wide range of materials. Many of his explorations have been with materials rarely used for jewelry, including wood, aluminum, acrylic, new synthetic materials, and eggshell inlay. His work often juxtaposes unexpected combinations—such as pumice stone and pure pigment, silk thread and ebony, acrylic and model aircraft plywood—and is noted for its subtle colors, sophisticated surface treatments, and balanced compositions.
