fold-formed, oxidized sterling silver with sterling silver hoops & ear wires
approx 3/4" by 3/4"
The fold-forming technique starts with raw sheet metal. Each piece is annealed (heated to a high temperature to soften the metal & make it malleable) then hammering over onto itself to create a fold in the metal. Shapes are then cutout before annealing again & unfolding. The end result of this process is symmetrical elements with an emphasized line down the center. These pieces are then combined or used on their own to create statement necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets & rings.
