This statement piece is from my Industrial Organic Spinning Bead Collection

An original design hand sawed and shaped in high quality 316 stainless steel. I like this grade of steel for it's hypoallergenic and anti-tarnish properties, as well as it's bright color and strength. The metal has a brushed finish with a hammered texture on the surface and edges. I use a specially formulated solder to attach the hand cut brass setting to the back plate, and rivets to attach the spinning Carnelian bead.
The one of a kind focal piece is created by manipulating many layers of vitreous enamel on copper to produce unique organic effects that cannot be duplicated.

About my enamel process: I start with cutting out the shape. I then heat the metal with a torch until it glows red and quench it in water. This makes the metal soft and allows me to dome it giving it dimension and strength. The piece is then torch fired upside down and the back is coated with 5 layers of enamel to counter the amount of layers that will be on the front, each layer is fired separately. The front is then cleaned and the piece is now fired with the front up with a base coat of enamel followed by a second coat so the entire piece is evenly covered with color. I then use a self-developed technique which is a complex formula of enamel and chemicals combined with the right temperature and length of time applied to the piece to create the organic patterns that you see. Each piece is truly a one of a kind.

The bail is made from titanium, and the pendant hangs from a 3 mm thick 18" rubber cord with friction clasp.
