MetalTaboo's Profile

About

Let's see. I'm a jewelry designer living in Brooklyn, NY. I'm 32 yrs old. I took a class in metalsmithing years ago and have been self teaching and making jewelry ever since. I really love working with metal. It's an honest, obediant material. It only does what you want it to do. If it doesn't, it's your own fault.

I'm very interested in the human perception of right vs. wrong, saintly vs. sinful, pure vs. deviant. I'm amused with people who pick the latters of these choices. And even more amused with the people who pretend they prefer the formers, but secretly pratice the latters.

Other than that, Metal Taboo gives me an outlet to design, which I love. If you want to know more about me, ask!

As for the pieces, a lot of thought, time, energy, effort, and lust is put into each piece. Metalsmithing techniques are used including stamping, oxidizing, drilling, sawing, polishing, soldering, etc. On top of that, pieces are only made with top of the line materials--solid sterling silver instead of silver plated, gold-filled instead of gold plated, and other natural metals like copper and brass.
