november jewelry of the month

this month i am featuring a simple silver pin – the quick bend pin. i made the shape by cutting the metal with a large metal shear, turning the edge just so with each slice. then i added the bend for a little depth and dimension. the matte finish is incredibly soft and is reminiscent of mother of pearl. i made 6 pins and each one is a little bit different. they measure approximately 1.5” long x 1” wide and are made from sterling silver.

the pins are $72 a piece and each comes with a numbered and signed card.

jewelry of the month is a way for me to realize designs that don’t fit into my regular collections or studio jewelry. these pieces are an opportunity to take ideas from sketchbook to workbench and share them with you.

each edition will be limited to less than 10 and will come with a numbered and signed card. each item will sell for under $120. i plan to use unusual materials like vintage wallpaper, new
techniques like sewing, and i will collaborate with friends who work in other media like glass
and clay.

if you would like advance notice, please send me an email to sign up for my jewelry of the month mailing list.

thanks for reading.
