Today was pure fun. This pendant is foldformed copper, snipped around the edges fringe-fashion. The entire piece was hit with a torch flame until bright red hot, then each bit of fringe was melted from the edge until it began to ball up. The golds and reds are flame painted.
After thinking a lot about what style the bale should be, it seemed right to hang it from a chain as though the piece was on the bottom of the ocean and got snagged in a fisherman's net. So close your eyes and think of walking along a sandy beach. Blue sky, hot sun, waves at your feet, when an object washes ashore. You pick it up...
**This piece is a giveaway choice**
...but in the meantime you might see me wearing it!

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