Note from the Artist
I made these fused silver earrings 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 Intertwined Dangles I was inspired by the delicious visual tension of juxtaposed textures.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the varying textures in Intertwined Dangles is no exception. 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 Intertwined Dangles.
