the 7 Alchemical keys, assembled,     puzzel

this is a puzel made from forged platinum and 18k gold. the pieces come apart and have been burried all over the world. 2 have been found. They are held in lead envelopes and were left near monuments back in 1996. author Melissa Rossi wrote an article for national geographic but it was deemed "unbelievable". One was found under Einsteins Thumb by the NSA in Washington DC.....they were not happy bout it.

What a fantastic piece, both as a piece and conceptually.

Are you aware of Kit William's book "Masquerade".

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen....sounds like the beginnings of a Dan Brown novel.

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!
