At Piccolo Spoleto I met Charles Pinckney.
I was familiar with his work from his website, but had never seen it "up close". It is exquisite. Charles works with metals and precious gems, fashioning beautiful jewelry creations, as you can see here. He also creates lamps which also reflect his unique design vision. I enjoyed meeting him, and finally getting to see his work in person. You can see more of his work here.
