Up Close With The The Roger Thomas Jewelry Collection
Legendary designer Roger Thomas, the man responsible for nearly everything you love about Wynn & Encore and the man whose lasting vision can still be seen throughout Bellagio, Mirage, Treasure Island and Golden Nugget has channeled his font of creativity towards a new endeavor - micro mosaic jewelry. His debut line, forged by SICIS, the very same Italian artisans who are responsible for the incredible floor tile mosaics through Wynn & Encore, is now being shown at Wynn & Company in the Wynn Esplanade.
There are approximately 24 pieces in the collection, most of which are available for viewing inside of Wynn & Company, where they don't allow photographs. Fortunately for us there are a handful of pieces in the window displays which are fair game for shutterbugs and drooling RogThom fetishists.
The impetus of the collection is "micro mosaics" taking the tiniest shards of materials and arranging them delicately into pristinely organized works of inlay art. One can only guess that each piece contains thousands of pieces of material that make up each mosaic.
Look at the amazing detail on this bracelet.
This larger piece, a necklace, even incorporates a signature Roger Thomas flourish - a tassel!
Could it possibly be that we are looking at future echoes of Roger's new design language for Wynn Cotai?
A ring of feather... perhaps part of the Fenghuang, or 'rooster of virtue.'
Perhaps my favorite pieces of the collection is a series of Cubist-meets-Kraftwerk designs that can be viewed on the SICIS website as well as inside of the store. These elegant, retro-modernist designs feature exciting angles and a painters eye for color and shading and depth. Wow.
Now, if I only had $10k+ enhance the incredible radiance of my incredibly deserving wife.
