Fabrication

I made this necklace and ring a long time ago but I still wear them now and again. I have a special place in my heart for fabrication because my father is a Machinist. Watching him make beautiful shiny parts inspired me to take a jewelry class in Geneseo. I had a fantastic jewelry Professor, Patrice Case. She really pushed me to experiment with the process of making something.

The necklace is made of copper with sterling and brass lamination inlay. There is a lot of texture in this piece that I love from the hammer and scratched liver of sulfur patina.


The ring is a "box ring" construction with a copper surprise. Keeping the copper contained also kept it from tarnishing.
