Back to the basics!
For me, the past couple of months have been taken up with elaborate schemes of three-dimensional effects of silver in glass and my brain was/is filled with ideas and possible effects in PMC.
I have been moving away more and more from the simple, minimalistic but clear and colorful style I started with.
It’s good to evolve. It’s good to develop and learn new things but once you get the feeling that complexity and effect start to get in the way of aesthetics, it’s time to stop and maybe take a step back.
So, I have gone back to the basics and I realized that sometimes simple may be as good or even better.

I try to create crisp edges and clear shapes in many of my pieces by cold working the glass after the fusing process. Cold working is a time consuming process in which the glass is sanded with consecutively finer and finer grid until it is shaped and the glass is completely smooth.
Many of the pendants, brooches and earrings have 99.9% pure silver inclusions and all of the wire and bails I use are sterling silver.
