In the Continuance Collection, David Yurman dances with line, artfully playing with strands of gold and silver. Like an unbroken contour drawing where the pencil never leaves the page, loops and curves cross over in infinite graceful gestures. The signature Cable motif is organically continued as it winds and unwinds in lyrical expressions. In music, loops are repeating sections of sound creating rhythmic patterns. The seductive repetition in Continuance are like three- dimensional representations of rhythm in a song. Enhancing the melody, certain pieces are intermittently handset with gypsy set and pave diamonds and available in 18k white, pink and yellow gold.
The collection is an elegant example of the David Yurman craft. Closely related to his drawing, David’s use of metal as a sculptor is key to his artistic sensibility. At sixteen he was taught direct-welding – an industrial technique developed by Julio Gonzalez and Picasso to make art they called “drawing in space.” Essentially, the technique involves melting linear rods of metal into one another with a torch to create forms. A sculptural dimension is achieved entirely through line. This way of working prepared the ground for David making sculptural jewelry and naturally led to twisting wires into cable.
Meticulously engineered to fall perfectly on the wrist or the neck, “Sculpture on the body” is how Sybil Yurman, David’s wife, describes the new Continuance Collection.
