In 2003, my Aunt and Godmother handed me a gold pocket watch and fob. It had been engraved in 1909 with the relief of the famous “Pharaoh’s Horses”, and belonged to her father, my grandfather.
Right then I knew this family heirloom would launch my next business, a horse jewelry design company named Tempi Design Studio. “Tempi” means change, and I planned to work towards a new dimension in Horse and Equestrian Jewelry Designs. “Studio” kept my connection of the Dental Laboratory Studio I owned and operated for so many years, where detail and custom made was a daily task.
My work conveys a new dimension in the wearable art world. As an emerging artist, with a lifetime passion of animal art, I strive to capture the enchantment of my subject in an accurate but charming moment. Initially carved in wax, then cast by the lost wax method. My unique creations capture horses, dogs, cats, foxes, birds, nature and nautical themes.
In addition, I love custom orders of an owner’s beloved pet, a company logo, or a particular breed of animal. These one-of-a-kind or limited edition commissions keep my creative juices flowing.
This new website launch began with the Equestrian Designs, and other designs have been added along the way. I strive to add even more new designs every calendar quarter. With a casting house assisting my production, Tempi can keep up with a growing business.
Check out the many subject themes, You don’t have to love Horses to love Tempi!!
