John Paul Miller's fascination with jewelry technique emerged in his groundbreaking rediscovery in the early 1950s of granulation, an ancient, forgotten technique of fusing gold beads to a gold surface without using solder. The fleeting creatures of earth, sea, and sky, such as the insect on this necklace, became his muses, inspiring a body of work full of curiously textured forms.
