Necklace. Enameled steel, original illustration, silver.
This custom pendant necklace is composed of an original pencil drawing of an iris set in a bezel etched with an original line of poetry. The drawing is graphite on enameled steel which, when torch-fired, becomes permanently fused to the glass.
The text on the bezel is an excerpt from one of my original poems entitled, "Born." Read the entire poem on my blog here.Looking for something even more unique? Contact me to design a custom piece just for you.

I often use found photos and family ephemera to invent stories and fictional eulogies; I write verse and combine enameling and other techniques to forge those stories in metal. This piece is “Chapter One” of a set of three bracelets wherein a young man is leaving home for war.
