One of the most distinctive and prominent details in my current work is in building and constructing hand hammered forged wire forms that I use as a core structure to my work. In this workshop, explore this concept and other thought provoking ideas in jewelry adornment shapes, forms and detail to create 3 unique bangle bracelet.

Start with building in sterling silver by creating a nail head, binding, soldering on small gauge wire to create an industrial nail head expression.

Secondly, using bronze, learn my methods to forge and anneal, and use a heat closure with sterling silver wire by drawing a bead.

Thirdly, create a gorgeous flexible leather bangle to add to the collection. This final bracelet allows for attachment of objects and charms to fill out and complete your exceptional + unique set.
