Guest Star #75...Per Suntum

Dive #2, brooch in silver, niello, enamel

While looking at 500 Silver Jewelry Designs I discovered the work of Per Suntum. Per's work caught my attention because of its quiet presence and fascinating surface design. I am so curious how he created the surfaces on these pieces! Each brooch reminds me of a moment on a wall of a building or along the ground. I take lots of pictures of distressed surfaces, peeling paint, and rust that I see in everyday life and Per's pieces are like studies in these textures.
