A business card holder. I needed a nice holder for my own cards and made a few prototypes. I love the result and decided to share it and offer it through etsy. A different use of foldforming.

About

Art to touch the heart

Antje grew up in Germany in a family where strong emphasis was placed on doing things with your hands. Her broad education in a Waldorf school gave her exposure and knowledge of many skills in addition to a form language that was deeply embedded in her creative vocabulary and that she draws from in her current work.
Antje is a german trained Goldsmith for 30 years now and has lived and worked in Maine USA for the past 27 years.
Antje came to Maine directly after her apprenticeship and worked with Michael Good where she learned anticlastic raising. She stayed with him for 15 years, designing and creating part of the jewelry collection. In 2005 she started to explore her own work independently;
Now creating jewelry, bronze and copper sculptures or larger outdoor pieces out of steel.

Additional policies and FAQs
Special orders:
Here is how my special order process works for belt buckles:
I get a design from you or guidelines and I carve it in wax. I then send you a picture. Upon your approval and payment, I bring it to the caster to cast into bronze. When I get it back I clean it up, solder the bar for the belt on the back and finish it. When I send it to you, you are hopefully absolutely pleased and happy.
Pricing:
If the design is such that I think I could sell other castings of it, my rough estimate for a special order is ~$200-250, depending how involved the design is and if I have other pieces that can be cast at the same time. If the caster only casts this single piece it is quite a bit more expensive.
If I can't sell other castings of the design, I charge an hourly rate of $50 plus the casting costs. And here again it depends on how complicated the design is.

Other special orders, e.g. forged hooks:
Write me a convo with your idea as detailed as you can. I'll tell you if I can do it or not.
I charge an hourly rate of $50 plus material cost.
Depending on the request, I might require 1/2 of the cost before I start with the design process. Photos along the way to get your approval and payment in full before I ship it.
