Jewelry Master Robert Lee Morris Shows Off His TSV, And X-Ray Of His New Thumb Bone, On QVC

July 8, 2010

The X-ray of Robert Lee Morris's new thumb bone

We’re feeling rather frazzled and overwhelmed this week, so it’s the right time to tune in to award-winning jewelry artist Robert Lee Morris — he of the Zen-like manner — on QVC.

If you haven’t heard of Robert, then you are not a jewelry geek. His sleek, rounded high-end jewelry is used on the runway by fashion designers like Donna Karan, but several years ago he created an affordable line, RLM Studio, for QVC.

He crafts organic and nature-inspired jewelry usually in sterling silver, but he is doing gold-plated, brass and copper pieces for his QVC line now as well.

Robert is a New Age guy: His pieces are all symbolic and spiritual. He describes it as “jewelry that has soul.”

What other jewelry vendor talks about Carl Jung and chi when he’s hawking his wares on a home shopping network?

Robert, the calmest person we have ever seen, has QVC’s Today’s Special Value Thursday. It’s a symbol-link silver and brass bracelet for $115.

Robert, who celebrated his birthday Wednesday, blogged about the symbolism of his TSV.

He also blogged about his surgery. Robert even posted an X-ray of thumb bone, which was replaced.

He is wearing a bandage on his left arm on-air, and said he has “bionic wrist joints” now. All those 40 years of hammering jewelry at a bench has taken it toll on Robert’s arms.

Robert said he will also need surgery on his right arm.
