The pieces in this series are crafted from an actual ink pen nib that is suspended in a carefully crafted flower form. The pen nibs are buffed down at the end to remove the sharp point, and set to hang and move freely. The flowers are individually hand-wrought from reclaimed industrial scrap copper that is painstakingly cleaned and reworked. They are cut, formed, hammered, textured and then polished or patinated with heat or solutions. The sterling wire that holds the pen nib is 100% recycled silver.
The use of alternative components and re-purposed objects such as a pen nib is my way of challenging the concept of fine jewelry and what are considered proper materials.
The design, materials and processes used are intended to create a contemporary finished piece that has a sense of mystery and antiquity. I invite you to let your imagination run free and create your own story with these unique pieces.
