Necklace. Bronze, enameled steel, sterling silver.
"Inheritance" is designed as a nontraditional photo locket. It features a vintage photo of my grandmother, studied in three variations. I allowed the organic and volatile nature of torch-fired enamel to create a distressed effect on the images.
The three photo tiles are prong-set in bronze, clustered on a long, oxidized sterling silver chain with a hardware-inspired bronze closure and bronze lost wax cast honey bee detail.

My mom collects feathers for me when she finds them near her house in the woods. I keep them in a jar on my bench. They inspired me to try to fabricate a feather, pictured here. This piece became the basis for my “Not Lost” personalized memorial necklace, find it on my website or look back in my feed to get a look. Hand fabricated sterling silver, 1/2” x 3”.
