Glenn Lehrer is internationally recognized as one of the finest gemstone carvers of our time. His fluid gemstone carvings and precisely faceted stones are featured in custom, fine jewelry and exquisite gemstone sculptures around the world. Perhaps Glenn Lehrer's greatest talent is in being able to transform a solid stone into a piece of art that miraculously transcends its own physical properties. Under Glenn's expert hands, gemstones become green leaves newly formed or butterfly wings that seem to flutter when glimpsed out of the corner of your eye.
Lehrer's thirty-five year career with gemstone carving and jewelry design began when he returned from traveling around the world in his twenty's. His own fascination with a gift of cut quartz from his brother gave him his first inkling that he would pursue a career in the lapidary arts. A self taught lapidariest and goldsmith, he returned to college to study geology, mineralogy, higher math, and crystallography. He received his graduate gemology degree in residence in 1979 from GIA. For Mr. Lehrer gem carving is where art and science merge to create a synergistic effect.
Lehrer established Lehrer Designs in 1981. His retail store and gem cutting studio are located in Northern California. Lehrer has build a world-wide company serving miners, wholesalers, jewelry designs and retail customers with his unique gemstones, cutting expertise and fine jewelry.
Lehrer has won many prestigious awards for his jewelry and gemstone designs: seven Cutting Edge Awards and one Spectrum Award from (AGTA) the American Gem Trade Association; the NITCH Award; and an award from the prestigious Idar-Oberstein Carvers and Engravers Association in Germany. His award winning gemstones and jewelry designs have appeared on the cover of fourteen major jewelry publications, and numerous articles have been written describing his craftsmanship. Four of his carvings have been featured in the Modern Jewelers' Gem Profile collection.
Lehrer's gemstones, sculptures, and jewelry have been featured in many stores, shows and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia including the Furstman Institute of Mineralogy in Moscow, the Gemological Institute of American, the Lizzardro Museum of Lapidary Art in Illinois, and the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
Lehrer is a member of the American Gem Traders Association and served on the Board of Directors of AGTA for 9 years, and currently is serving on the Board. He was instrumental in restructuring the organization which increased organizational efficiency, more productive Board meetings and effective staff-Board relationship. As chair of the Constitution committee, he was responsible for re-writing AGTA's constitution and bylaws.
Lehrer was given a lifetime honorary membership in International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) for his work consulting with the Board and staff to re-write and update their Constitution and By-laws.
Lehrer works with miners from around the world, buying rough, as well doing specialized cutting and carving unique gemstones and sculptures from the miners finest stones.
Lehrer has been a TV host on several large Gemstone and Jewelry Sales programs, in the United States and England for his gem cutting knowledge and artistry. He has also successfully sold his gemstones and jewelry on TV. Lehrer is a well-known lecturer in the gem and jewelry industry and a teacher of lapidary carving.
Lehrer has pioneered some of the world's largest gemstone sculptures.
...
In addition to his award winning carvings, Glenn Lehrer invented a new cut, the "TorusRing™ Gemstone", a modern looking, faceted gemstone with a hole in the middle. This center hole is ideal for setting another gemstone, allowing complimentary color design. He is one of very few modern gemstone designers to have received a U.S. utility patent (#5722261) for the TorusRing Gemcut™.
Since 1986, Lehrer has studied and co-created with some of the finest engravers from Idar-Oberstein, Germany such as Hans Ulrich Pauly, the well-known cameo carver.
...
Lehrer and Pauly have combined their unique skills and talents to create magnificent, large gemstone sculptures with multiple reflected intaglio images, giving the viewer a holographic like effect.
...
From jewelry to gemstones, Glenn Lehrer's designs are constantly expanding horizons in the jewelry industry, inspiring awe and wonder at their beauty and execution.
