Totem

One-of-a-kind Sculpture/Brooch Sterling silver, piano key ivory scrimshaw, ebony 7 1/4” x 4” x 1/2” $2,200

Originally made for SNAG’s Exhibition in Motion at the 2003 conference in San Francisco (inset), Totem remains one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever made. This oversized brooch epitomizes many of the technical and design elements that would become signatures of my work in years to come, including its sense of “frozen music” and use of piano key ivory scrimshaw. With more than 100 solder joints, this labor-intensive piece was forged and fabricated from many individual pieces of Sterling sliver wire and sheet. A collector’s item.

Astro Neckpiece
One-of-a-kind Neckpiece Sterling silver, walnut 11” x 6” x 1/2” $2,400

The centerpiece of my first solo show, Astro is the quintessential Mid-Century modern tribute in my collection. Movement is both implied and actual in the strong lines of this design, punctuated by hand-carved solid walnut “cabochons.” As with much of my one-of-a-kind jewelry, this intricate piece comprises dozens of individually-fabricated elements arranged to create what I feel is a balanced, joyous composition. It’s a true statement piece and continues to be my favorite neckpiece to date.

When There is Nothing Left to Burn... (You Have to Set Yourself on Fire)
One-of-a-kind Neckpiece Sterling Silver, Strike Anywhere™ matches 24’ Long | Pendant: 2 3/4” x 2” x 1/2” $1,800

The first in my “milagro” series (still in production), this neckpiece is another milestone in my collected works. With its bouquet of Strike Anywhere™ match heads gathered like delicate rosettes, this milagro represents the heart waiting to be ignited by love. As with many of my pieces, the title comes from a favorite song lyric, which is delicately hand-engraved on the back. The robust edge is knurled to facilitate ignition, but an outside hand is needed to start the reaction.
