Earthy and rustic, handcrafted, mixed metal and torch fired enamel jewelry for men and women. Primarily copper, brass and sterling silver with various textures and patina to give a worn aged look. My work is hand forged by me using antique hammers for added texture. Other techniques include use of etching, hydraulic press, rolling mill and torch firing. Earth Metalworks has 3 collections : “Surf Collection” : Includes the use of found objects such as sea glass, beach stone or ancient roman glass. Earth Collection : Mixed metals which may include the use of salvaged items like antique barn nails, washers or keys. I repurpose items such leather belts/ bags for cuffs. Fire Collection: Torch fired enamel on copper.
I find my sea glass and stone on Maine beaches and islands. Salvaged items come from architectural salvage in ME and NH. My work is not shiny or polished. It has the markings of an artists hand. Perfectly imperfect, with a worn, earthy and rugged style that appeals to both men and women.
