Aphrodite Goes to War


Russian Filigree, High Relief Eastern Repoussé, and Roman and Original Vertebrate Chain halter
Sterling Silver, Fine Silver, copper
18 ” long x 40″ wide x 3/4″ deep, all chains are adjustable to fit most any size

War on Poverty… War on Drugs… War on Terror.. They have each been as effective as a War on Love. Working with fine silver, sterling silver, and copper, in Russian filigree, high relief Eastern repoussé, and one of my original pattern loop-in-loop chains, I placed my commitment to historical metalsmithing right up front.
