Welcome back Tammy!
After a few months in Switzerland - working on a set for a play, no less! - Tammy is back with us at the bench, working on new pieces.
She works mainly with brass, silver, and wood, fabricating these amazing hollow forms that are heavy on style but light as a feather around your neck.
After fabricating the forms, she adds silver tubing through the centre for the chains to slide through. She then powder coats each shape in varying colours, which also adds texture and depth.
Her work is the subject of today's save vs. splurge, and here are the pieces we are featuring:
This small pendant looks like an adorable hat box. It is a hollow form constructed in brass, and powder-coated in Tiffany blue. You can see the brass peeking through around the edges. There is silver tubing soldered through the centre for the chain. This beauty is a steal at $95.
This statement necklace is a very worthwhile splurge at $425. There are three separate pieces here - the centre form is brass, while the two on the end are wood. The chain has a mechanical closure, and is made of sterling. I kind of think that this bold necklace is also a steal:)
These photos definitely do not do her pieces justice - I highly recommend stopping by the studio to take a look at these in person.
