Introducing mini-collections! This is an experiment; we'll see how it goes, but for now, our metalsmith is going to run with a theme each week, make a small, limited edition collection, and then we'll be listing them all at once, to give everyone time to see them and think about them and an equal chance to grab them.
This week's collection are all nice little wearable pieces made out of vintage and antique silver services. There's pendants and earrings and cuffs; build yourself a set or order a la carte!
Moonscape #7, in particular, is made from a platter that was silverplate over steel; it was a popular process in the 70s', but as you can see, it chipped a lot more than the processes before and after. I like the mottled effect this has created, but this one should not be worn in salt water or a chlorine pool.
The curve from the edge of the plate creates a drape over your wrist; these cuffs are amoungst the most comfortable I've ever made. The "moonscapes" are the shadows of masks; the lines, cut by hand, mirror the piece that was cut from them. They are folded over for strength and comfort. The "Edges" are just that; endemic texture, casting, engraving, or stamping from the antique platters I use to make bigger pieces, but they are beautiful in their own right.
Sizing is quite flexible, but nothing is ever one size fits all; the size chart is based on the actual measurement of your wrist, so if you like things loose, size up, if you like them tight, size down.
