New Ariadne Earrings

I had a great time trying  out a few different variations on a theme.  The end result…. I like them all.  They are great to put on and wear.  I have gotten so many compliments.  They really get noticed.  The next step is to make one in gold.  Which one should I start with?

Bronze Belt Buckles

Bronze Belt Buckles

These belt buckles are pieces of art, created for people that enjoy expressing themselves through beauty and love to wear hand made pieces to reflect their individuality. Many steps are involved to create them.

My first models for these belt buckles I sculpted in plasteline. But plasteline is too soft to use as a model in sand casting. Wax on the other hand is hard enough. So I made a mold of the plasteline sculptures and cast wax into it. Recently I carve the new sculptures directly in wax.

The video below shows the casting process in detail.

All belt bucks are available for sale on my Website: www.visualartsmaine.com

 

And here is the video demonstrating the sand casting process of the Belt Buckles:

Foldform Jewelry and Sculpture

Foldformed Jewelry

This is part of a jewelry collection I created in the early 1990 in the technique of anticlastic raising. I discovered that I can create the same shapes with foldforming and have resurrected the collection. Since one actually forges the shapes with forldforming, a very interesting hammer pattern covers the surface.
All pieces are available in sterling silver or 18kt gold (if not posted ask for the current gold price) Some of the earrings are available in copper with silver wire. All pieces can be purchased directly online through : www.visualartsmaine.com
