The Golden Menagerie



With an artist’s eye and an explorer’s heart, Temple St. Clair fashions jewelry from rare colored gems, using distinctive gold work to illustrate universal narratives of the earth and cosmos. St. Clair’s Golden Menagerie is a magical journey through each of her three Haute Couture collections: Mythical Creatures, Wings of Desire, and The Big Game. Mythical Creatures made its debut with a critically acclaimed exhibition at Paris’s Musée des Arts Decoratifs in January 2015; Wings of Desire was unveiled at The Salon: Art + Design in New York in November 2015; and The Big Game debuted at the DeLorenzo gallery in New York in December 2016. In each of the one-of-a-kind pieces that comprise her Haute Couture collection, St. Clair explores the human relationship to animals through a lens of whimsy and discovery, expressed with a connoisseur’s level of gemstones and Florentine craftsmanship. The Golden Menagerie offers an exclusive window into the alchemic jeweler’s process, illustrating the collection through St. Clair’s original watercolor paintings and luminous photography at each stage of creation. From the articulated Secret Garden Serpent necklace, to vibrantly jeweled Fantasy Birds earrings, to a ring mounted with a falcon ready to take flight from the wearer’s finger, St. Clair’s creations come to life on the page, imbued with alchemy and artistry.
