Raoul Sosa: Lapidary Master

Mostly self-taught, Raoul Sosa is a renowned lapidary, or gemcutter, whose work is influenced by that of the great Charles Loloma and his contemporaries. Sosa’s work is also inspired by the jewelry of Egypt, Italy, and Greece, and he uses age-old techniques but with a contemporary flair. Sosa cuts, shapes, and sculpts precious stones as an artist does marble, coaxing out and magnifying their natural beauty and creating wearable pieces of art. With an exceptional eye and attention to detail, he creates timeless, unique baubles that are sure to be admired for generations to come.
