Who I am?
After firing pieces are polished and may be oxidized (patinated) which gives an antiqued’ old found treasure’ look to the silver. This can highlight / low light textures,and give an alternative’ dark ‘ look to bright shiny siver. Gold detail is something that I add sometimes. By using the ancient korean method of keumboo which uses heat and pressure to burnish gold foil to the silver. I like to use enamel to add colour and what I think of as water effects to some pieces.. The process of enameling involves using finely ground coloured glass which is fused on to the silver at high temperatures ,and the results are beautiful layers of translucent colour.
(Adornment is a primitive desire ,and I love the idea of jewelry as an means of self expression , and I’m intrigued by the idea of wearable art.)
