Driven by passion to capture beauty, Charlie Wharton, creator and owner of Starfire Designs Jewelry, never stops creating, even after 20 years of designing jewelry. He’s immersed himself in every facet of jewelry design and production and is now recognized as one of the top jewelry sculptors in the United States.
creatives-charlie-wharton-portraitHe travels the country meeting with gem dealers from around the globe to find unique pieces for his hand-sculpted pendants, bracelets, rings, earrings and neckwires. He’s drawn to precious and semi-precious stones, antique pieces, and wonders of the natural world.   Inspired by the ancient Egyptian art of wire-wrapping, he creates beautiful hand-sculpted settings for his gorgeous finds. To mark his work, he completes each piece by adorning the top with a crown, his artistic signature.

Today, from his studio near Asheville, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, he creates lovely pieces that are sold in a number of retailers throughout the U.S., as well as through Trunk Shows. In the Carolinas, find his work in Asheville at the Biltmore Lamp and Shade Company, The Dande Lion in Banner Elk, and Plain and Fancy in Pawleys Island.
