Note from the Artist
I made this Agate necklace entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures I can create combining fusing, forging, casting and riveting. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Flexible Connections I was inspired by the ever changing secret depths of water.
Rippling waters ebb and flow revealing and concealing with each subtle wave. The rippling pattern of this sumptuous Brazilian Agate reminds me of the undulating eddies of stones cast upon the water. Silver pebbles skipping blithely along, until they’re lost beneath the waves, sinking secrets into the mysterious depths far beyond our reach. All that remains are the gently spreading rings of water to mark their passage. An ephemeral journey leaving rapidly fading swells along the surface, drifting peacefully in silent serenity.
Probably one of my favorite things to create is handmade chain- and the chain in Flexible Connections is no exception. For this art necklace, I decided it needed even more visual texture to balance the stunning Agate. Each link is carefully textured, then forged and riveted to the next in a show stopping modernist design. A graceful line of graduating silver links textured and forged with subtle detailing in a perfect sweep of rippling silver. No two links are identical, of course, right down to the hand forged incorporated clasp.
I hope you enjoy Flexible Connections.
