Life on the west coast captured in silver. This piece is one of a kind and cut by hand. I use a little saw to hand cut out each layer and element.
This piece is made up of 3 silver disks that I punch out. From these I cut the mountains, trees and waves with my little saw and solder the layers together using traditional goldsmith techniques. This is gives the piece a really fantastic weight and depth.
The hammered markings around the edge of the piece are a compass rose in Morse Code. N, S, E and W. A little reminder to guide you home, to guide your heart.
100% Oxidized Sterling Silver
7/8” pendant pictured here on an oxidized cable chain.
Each piece is finished with a black patina that I remove by hand, creating a shaded effect that adds a really interesting contrast and brings out the details.
