David and Sybil find inspiration in the delicate willows at their country home. The trees’ dance reflected in the pond moved David to write a haiku and the couple to design the enchanting Willow Collection. Slender, feather-like stalks are sculpted from iconic Cable into lyrical and feminine shapes of silver and gold accented with pavé diamonds. The collection is an embodiment of form, movement, and grace.
Trained as a sculptor, David Yurman approaches the design of a piece of jewelry from every angle. “It’s about the whole piece,” he says. “How it feels in your hand, how it looks on the back as well as the front.” He combines shape and form to create designs with volume and dimension—wearable sculpture. “Form is form,” he explains, “whether it hangs on a wall, goes on a pedestal, goes on a wrist, or goes on a neck. Learning how to balance a little sculpture on a stand is really no different from learning how to balance a stone on the end of a bracelet.”
