Georgina Brett Chinnery + Leather + Birds = WOW! If you’ve been following DAM, you might remember I recently had a close encounter with a raven. . .or a crow. . .not quite sure which. I feel strongly the bird was bringing me a message and it’s a powerful one.
Using cast metal legs with a skull and wire armature, UK based Chinnery hand stitches and molds tooled leather into life size crows.
She believes the birds symbolize freedom as they soar high above us. Yes. What she said.
“Georgina’s work. . .examines the juxtaposition of beauty, horror, death, rebirth, freedom and restriction.” ~ From the artist’s website

Lorenzo Pepe lives and works on the island of Formentera, off the coast of Spain. He makes experimental jewelry, drawing inspiration from the structures and textures of the marine life that surrounds him. I’m not sure which is sexier – the jewelry or the photos. Kudos on both.

Every piece of E. Douglas Wunder’s jewelry begins as a graphic drawing on paper. He transforms the drawings into three dimensional constructions that have a distinct industrial feel and tone.
Wunder hand cuts most of the metal sheet, tubing and wire used for each piece – occasionally using laser cut technology for some of the components in his complex, multi-layered titanium collections.
“Little holes are arranged on the multiple parts with a drill press. Small wires are then fitted through. Measured pieces of tubing are beaded on to serve as spacers. This becomes a repeated layering activity and finished by having the wire ends tapped (rivets) with a hammer and anvil. The completed piece will incorporate my aesthetic concerns combined with the engineering elements that reflect my visual style.”
