This one of a kind cuff is made with hammered and engraved Argentium Silver, CA Gold Nuggets fused and oxidized as well as an 8mm, 6mm and 4mm concave cut Natural Topaz.
The creative process starts for me by choosing an interesting stone. In certain ways, I feel like a treasure hunter but one who likes to reveal the stone’s character. Nature gives me everything in a piece. The perceived drama or beauty just needs to be highlighted through a very selective cut, creating and revealing a composition within the stone. This revealed composition or nature’s art has to be supported by the overall composition of the wearable artwork. This is achieved by using sometimes vibrant symmetrical designs or other times with dynamic, asymmetrical compositions that are balanced. Depending on what the overall piece guides me to do, I bring stones together or I place them apart. I think, our vision is circular and not framed in a rectangular or square format. If everything in a piece or in the composition is right, it will resonate within the person who looks at it and wears it.
