Reaching for more design options to construct necklaces using scrap cutouts. While the drawing is a preliminary idea, the abstract foliage pieces soldered onto sterling silver disks and the loose tiny flowers are inspired by Matisse’s paper cutouts. The layout is for a necklace that will be heading to my bench this week for fabrication.
For months I’ve been collecting the negative part of the flower cutouts that I sawed from sterling silver sheets to make the flat flowers for my Bouquet Collection earrings and necklaces. These negative parts, which I call skeletons, have kept me intrigued and wondering, thinking and contemplating designs.
I grabbed a bunch of the skeletons and rounded them into rings to get things flowing.
What will they become?…
Inspired by nature and vintage style. Working on new earrings for Spring.
