georgina brett chinnery’s leather crows

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.

She believes the birds symbolize freedom as they soar high above us. Yes. What she said.

e. douglas wunder: titanium constructions

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.

Ring Of Fire

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.”
