Wow!  Is the coral cold riveted to some sort of back plate, or are they applied for decoration?  Either way...unbelievably complex and elegant.

This is absolutely gorgeous!  How did you apply the gold balls to the coral?

This is beautiful!

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
