Today I began learning a new technique called fold-forming. It is a method that helps produce the appearance of organic sculpture. The piece below is my very first attempt at this method so be gentle ;-) I have to say, it was pure fun and it's likely I'll try another one tomorrow.
This pendant is hammered and sculpted from pure copper sheet metal. The natural properties of copper are used to best advantage to create an organic piece. I think the magnesite gemstone is a striking match for the rich patina of the copper. Visit the online shop for more details here.
Everyone please have a happy and lucky St. Patrick's Day! See you tomorrow.

Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
