Known in the fine art and craft circuit as the “Ear Cuff Man,” Paul Phillipe Desrochers has more than 25 years of experience specializing in ear cuff design. Desrochers also has over 50 years of experience as a sculptor, where his work has been on display in both Canada and the United States for decades. Desrochers Studio is located in Sugarloaf, NY and specializes in creating truly unique ear cuffs. “Each ear cuff is conceptualized, sketched, molded and handmade with precise attention to detail. The result is an elaborate work of art and tiny sculpture for your ear. Each creation starts in the mind and flows to the torch...you add the final touch." From the whimsical (turtles) to the graceful (flowers) and edgy (geometric designs), Desrochers’ pieces have their own individualized personality. Made from fine metals such as sterling silver, his ear cuffs are often accented with amethyst, onyx, green jade, garnet, turquoise, amethyst and other precious and semi-precious gems.
