Aphrodite's Rapture, necklace

This necklace is featured in Victoria's DVD,

Metal Techniques of Bronze Age Masters: Eastern Repousse and Chasing



The topography in my repoussé work (hammered relief from a single sheet of metal) is the aesthetic result of pushing the technique farther and higher. Ever obsessed with pyramidal shapes, in the late 1990's I began experimenting with creating relief shapes on top of the relief, something seemingly few artists have attempted. When asked which is my favorite technique, I usually reply that it's whatever technique I'm working in at the time, but I must admit there is really nothing more satisfying than hammering out these surfaces.
