Everett Macdonald Fish Ring

Everett Macdonald was a mid 20th-century studio jeweler who worked in Laguna Beach, California. He made mostly one-of-a kind pieces and a few very limited production designs. He was a modernist who initiated the use of nylon monofilament–strung between the negative spaces of his pendants and earrings, recalling the work of sculptors Henry Moore and Naum Gabo. He exhibited nationally and won several awards for his jewelry, though his recognition was mostly regional.
