The elegant pieces in this series are a ring of copper wire and free hanging strands of fine stainless steel chain. The copper rings are hand-wrought from re-purposed industrial braided electrical wire. They are individually formed, soldered, hammered and then re-heated to create a patina. The chains are carefully cut to exact measurements and attached to hang and freely.
The use of industrial metals and alternative components 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.
Centerpiece: 3" tall by 1" wide
