The ‘eye’ theme has been in my work for many years—however, the Golden Eye has managed to stick around the longest. It originated as a ring, developed into a necklace and then came around full circle and repeated itself in miniature form. This design is my single most popular in history; I’ve now made over 100 of them.
The memorial Urn is a tiny hand fabricated vessel to house cremains close to your heart. They are the most tedious pieces I have ever fabricated in my career purely because of their size and intricacy. Each vessel takes an average of 8 hours to fabricate. Finished, they measure approximately the size of Roosevelts head on a U.S. dime.
The design of The Red Cross ring came to me after I had been antique shopping and spotted a little red plus sign from across the room. These pins—weathered and dated 1913-1917—were given out to individuals who donated blood during WWI. Each pin is set in a seamless industrial setting; cut, soldered and filed to perfection.
A Timeless Collective is the start of a successive hand fabricated series that showcases antique or vintage objects in history. In Part I, each design was recreated entirely in sterling silver and showcases designs influenced by the typewriter, the rotary dial telephone, military laundry marking pins and vintage gas pumps.
