Part 2: Metalsmithing

These creations are from the time when I decided to expand my horizons and  learn more about different techniques and styles, and go beyond wirework. Learning to solder and professionally finish my work brough me immense pleasure and satisfaction, and opened so many possibilities I could only dream about before. This is also a period when I was very interested in Southwestern metalsmithing traditions, and it shows in some of the pieces I made back then. I also started collecting vintage and modern Native American jewelry, but that is a totally different story, though an extremely beautiful one as well.
