Playing with Space

I love playing with positive and negative space. I like the idea of jewelry being elemental and natural, but still there. Much of my work in recent weeks has focused less on gems (aside from my ever present woven pendants and bracelets) and more on the metal on its own. Here are some of the designs that focus purely on the shape of metal.

Disc Rings

There is something so appealing about disc rings to me. They are at once ancient and modern, classic and bohemian. They make a wonderful statement without being too much. I love sawing out each shape and stamping or hammering the designs. I love creating borders on the discs (or not) and I love pulling the finished product out of the tumbler...fantastic! I wear mine on my index finger but they look great on middle and ring fingers as well. Here are a few of the designs that I create over and over again. Some will find their way into my shop , others will be on my website .

I really love bangles - mostly skinny, and either alone for a wonderfully spare and alluring look, or in multiples for a more casual and musical (literally) look. Here are some of my interpretations... Happy Spring!
