Unraveling Pendant

Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver Wires
  |   $275
“In a positive act of destruction and transformation, I twist and untwist multiple wires of sterling silver into rope. Once frayed, the rope is laid onto a back plate of sterling silver and, using a torch, heated just below melting point to fuse into a solid piece. Multiple courses of heating and forging follow, in which there is always a risk that it may melt into a puddle. Is it fraying apart or knitting back together? As unraveling the dark corners of society: hatred, racism, oppression, bigotry, tyranny, or environmental destruction, I believe it is a positive act. We are knitting together community and twining our lives together.”
