Warped Metal's Profile

About

Many years ago, I discovered that there was little in the world of conventional (read: commercial) jewellery that appealed to me, other than the rare creation I would find of something beyond a statement of tradition or fashion...jewelry to me....

I also tasted a desire to incorporate natural forms such as crystals into jewellery, mostly for the form over the function...art jewellery....

But these seemed to be done in very limited quantities and to a niche market. I think that the world of today allows for greater appreciation and proliferation of custom gemstone cutting and fine handcrafted jewelry.

My personal taste seems to be a reflection of my 23 year long career in the automotive industry, of a fascination with mechanical objects, and merging that world with my other world of precious metals and minerals (a combination of the precision measurements of stainless steel, silver or gold, and the the random perfect beauty that nature has created).

And there really is so very much in this world, as I hope we always discover daily.
