been having lots of fun with a
technique called fold forming. It's a process of hammering, folding,
annealing and hammering some more to create 3-D designs and textures
from sheet metal. You can see an example to the left in
this fun cuff style bracelet.
I was excited to have a few of my
pieces recently featured in the June edition of Bay Magazine,
an upscale magazine
published quarterly as a Sunday supplement to the St. Petersburg Times
newpaper. The necklace was purchased by a local Tampa Bay resident and
the earrings went to Moscow, Russia.
I'll be launching a new jewelry
available in September at the Dunedin Fine Art Center and currently
have several pieces for sale at the Syd Entel Galleries in Safety
