Computer Bug Necklace

Computer Bug Necklace

Inspired by the Berlin Iron jewelry of the early 19th century, this work combines elements of old school with a modern twist. Both side pieces of the necklace were sand casted from impressions made by computer parts. Opals were then added to these parts. There a bug in the computer! The spider which sits top of the silhouetted girl is a nod to this old phrase about computer glitches. This work was 'lost wax' casted, sand casted, riveted, pierced, formed, acid etched and polished. It was given a salt and ammonia patina which gives it that bluish patina color. Copper Opals 18" W x 3.2" H $375.00

Edge of Chaos - Sculpture Work

Edge of Chaos - Sculpture Work

Title: Edge of Chaos Medium: Metalsmithing Year: 2013 Dimensions: 13.5 in L x 10.5 in W x 7.5 in H Price: $1594.00 Artist Statement: Edge of Chaos is a small scale sculptural jewelry art piece representing a theme of order and chaos. The installation is composed of thirteen white bronze rings mounted on a base of raised and hammered nickel silver, with a Herkimer diamond as a focal point. Using a unique hot wax and water technique I created rings with repeated patterns of what I characterize as spines and tentacles. Each ring was sculpted in this manner and then cast using a 'lost wax' process. The work is utterly divorced of any conventional preciousness and has become a pure non-functional sculptural work. The concept converges along three branches of theoretical thought: scientific evidence of chaos and randomness in nature; mathematical principles of proportion; and social theory about the role of the individual in society.

Perched Gargoyle Ring

Perched Gargoyle Ring

This ring was hand carved from wax and cast in white bronze using the lost wax casting method. It features a citrine stone below the the weathered gargoyle. Yes, this ring is quite heavy! Would be great for a rock star or in a music video! The ring has been worn out to social gatherings and and always receives many compliments and admirers. Its a really great conversation piece. The work was published in the prestigious book 'Showcase500 Rings: New Directions in Art Jewelry'. Ring size 8
