This statement piece is artistic, unexpected, and intricate; yet rugged and natural. The artist has hand-drawn sterling into a wire that is wrapped around the leather. The natural pearls are individually hand-knotted to create a dramatic drop from the bottom of the adjustable necklace. Zoom in for all the details.
This artist's handiwork is characterized by leather and hand-struck sterling silver. Her work is known for being organic, natural, and has a rough-hewn look and feel. This accomplished Kansas artist creates her sterling, gold, brass, and copper pieces from scratch. That means she smelts, pours, forms, and decorates each piece of metal herself. Each piece starts with the metal in its liquid form. The process can be laborsome, but it results in a pure metal that is strikingly rugged, pure, and authentic.
