Foliage III, pendant

 

Foliage is a recent series of Eastern repousse jewelry. Instead of flattening out all the slopes of the mountains, as has been my style for quite a few years now, I let the shapes retain more of their curvature on both axies. This gives the shapes a feeling of building vertically on top of each other. The shapes themselves are inspired by fern fronds, aspidistras, and orchid leaves. Rather than leave the shapes smooth, I have chased calligraphic textures on some shapes and added 24k gold kum boo on others. My intent is to create an abstracted hanging garden effect, reminiscent of indoor botanical conservatories with their walls of lush texture.
