Passion Made Visible
Necklace of Russian filigree and high relief Eastern repoussé from dimensionally patterned mokume gane, and Roman chain
fine silver, sterling, copper, shibuichi, 22k gold, Koroit opal
2-1/2″ x 3″ x 3/8″, 18″ chain
The design for this piece came from the flourishing strokes I created around some Fraktur calligraphy that I painted on a wall mural. In looking at the smaller scale drawing for it, I saw an unlimited source of possibilities that fit with my metalsmithing aesthetic.
