Jamie has titled this piece, as much art as jewelry, “Young Buck Prancing”. When it comes to his jewelry designs and the material he uses to produce them, this gifted artist is cleverly creative. Wearing Jamie’s jewelry tells everyone you have impeccable taste. That’s fine and dandy. Most of all, it makes you feel as if you have a magic talisman.
James A. Olson, says of himself, the artist:
“About my work, or lack of, it chose me as much as I chose it. Asked where I get my ideas, I can’t really say for sure. I’m thankful I get them once in awhile, and have the basic skills to carry them through to a satisfactory condition, at that point and time. I’m blessed, I love what I do, it’s a passion. When that love and passion is not there, I’ll do something else.”
Jamie’s work is finally getting the notice and recognition it deserves. Galleries in Denver, and Big Parts Elsewhere, are discovering him. He may live in a little studio just across from Twin Rocks Gallery and Cafe in Bluff, but as often happens, the world comes to Bluff. What the world discovers is art from the heart. Art from the soul.
If you’re tempted to get one of Jamie’s pieces of jewelry, each one unique, now is the time. We in Bluff, UT are at the edge of the epicenter of nowhere, and thankfully so, but there is only so much Jamie to go around!
