CORRUGATED WAVE RINGS
Were developed by incorporating industrial patterns and geometric structures, focusing on the texture, line and shapes created by these different techniques:
BASSE TAILLE
Basse-taille is an enamelling technique in which I create a low-relief pattern on copper using the etching process, translucent enamel is then applied to the metal, allowing light to reflect from the relief and creating an interesting effect.
COPPER ETCHING
            I etch my own designs into copper sheet to be used to create jewelry forms.  Using a safer etching alternative to the traditional hazardous chemicals, I employ an Electrolytic Copper Etching method using a resist, salt water and a battery.
