the pivoting dancer bangle 2015

daily rituals with a master goldsmith and a tenacious grasshopper learning the fine craft of traditional goldsmithing
smelting, forging, forming and master/student bonding, paired with soul food and nuggets of story telling!

a rare glimpse of the birth of my pivoting dancer bangle (a historic second piece made with the delicate guidance of my guru)

antique silver coins

my raw silver ingots are born from antique silver coins smelted into a crucible and poured into a steel vessel that forms the ingot. she is then forged, rolled, formed into a desired profile as I continue my design process.
