Starting with a sheet of sterling silver, I folded, hammered, and heated it in a process known as fold forming. I then cut discs out of the sheet in various sizes. The necklace is graduated with the largest disc as the focal. The circles are connected together with gold filled jump rings and chain.
The necklace measures 26 inches long and fits over the head. There is no clasp.
I use no solder in my pieces. I prefer the ancient art of using just heat and hammer to form my pieces. I use cold connections such as riveting or jump rings to connect the metal together.
The process of fold forming (which creates the folds in my work) uses only heat and hammer. The folds are made by “folding” the piece, hammering it down, and heating it to open it again. The fold forming process is repeated over and over again until I feel the piece is “done”.
***14K gold-filled wire is made by heat and pressure bonding a thin layer of 14K gold to a brass core. The ratio of gold to brass by weight is 5%. This means that there is an actual layer of gold over the brass instead of a microscopic film as in gold plated jewelry. Gold-filled jewelry does not tarnish.
