 Fabrication Process

The images below show the old-world jewelry-making technique called "fabrication" I trained in and have continued to explore and build on.

Fabrication means to cold work, roll-out, bend, saw, hammer, forge, and solder sheet and wire. In essence, to handcraft jewelry from scratch. Nothing is made from molds, designed in CAD, or carved by a machine.

This fabrication process allows for a unique more crisp and cleanly finished piece, with no two created that are exactly alike.
