Eastern repoussé pendant from dimensionally patterned mokume gane, Roman chain
Sterling, copper, shibuichi, 22k gold, fine silver, Koroit opal

4″ x 1″ x 3/8″, 20″ chain

The title of the series, Allahoudine, comes from the Arabic word for Aladdin. The inspiration for these shapes in my artwork comes from my love of Moorish archways the genie bottle shaped, blown glass I’ve collected from Egypt, and the gilded glass holiday ornaments that belonged to my grandmother.

There are so many exotic design styles from antiquity that speak to me far more than the current trends in art jewelry and commercial design. Never one to merely imitate the past, I meld the feeling evoked by design styles from history while always striving to speak these lines and curves in my own voice. My artwork lies at the intersection of others’ past and my present.

The pendant is shown with an adjustable 20″ 1-Directional Single Weave Roman chain and is also available with an 22″ chain of the same pattern.
