NEW YORK--Fine jewelry designer Lee Brevard died suddenly Sunday in Hollywood, Calif., at the home of a friend.
The cause of death has not been determined, according to Brian Kriezel, business manager for the designer's company. Brevard, who was 45, had not been ill, Kriezel noted.
Brevard, who was based in Los Angeles and began his career as a painter, started adding emeralds to his watercolors in 1977 and soon switched full-time to jewelry designing.
Brevard had an extensive celebrity clientele; his collection also was sold at upscale specialty stores, including Neiman Marcus and Takashimaya.
