Note from the Artist
I hand forged these modern sapphire cuff bracelets entirely by hand. I’m fascinated with the textures created by combining fusing, gemstones, and forging. Each piece on my workbench is special, but with Modern Sapphires I was inspired by the delicious visual tension of juxtaposed textures.
Subtle dappled texture in forged linear silver is highlighted by the elegant sparkle of white sapphire. The contrast of organically raw fused sterling silver and sapphire framing air brings a visual excitement to this unique modern sapphire cuff bracelet. Linear lines of patina darkened forged silver draw the eye, while the gleam and sparkle of white sapphire against hammered texture elegantly reflects the light.
Probably one of the most rewarding things to create is handmade texture- and the varying textures in Modern Sapphires 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 Modern Sapphires.
