Note from the Artist
I made this one of a kind long quartz necklace entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, granulation, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Imperial Connections I am inspired by the layers of experience that give us strength.
Every experience we have shapes our nature, giving us the strength to achieve our wildest dreams, and endure life’s toughest conflicts. Overcoming obstacles and achieving long held dreams, our life is a montage of defining moments conquered and memories claimed.
The handmade textures of Imperial Connections are very close to my artist’s soul. I always approach the creation of texture a bit like a mad scientist. The alchemy of fire, force, and metal is unpredictable and enthralling. Each hammer blow shapes the metal in a new direction. Each pass of a torch runs the risk of artistic implosion, where the metal could sink into a formless mass once more. The thrill of creation is echoed in the rush of artistic freedom with every moment, until the final texture is achieved.
I hope you enjoy Imperial Connections.
