The creativity of an artist, the insight of a woman, and the technical approach of an engineer.
We Three Rings (four actually)
Laurie Jane primarily works in Silver and Copper with items occasionally made from bronze and brass. These decorative items are for you and your surroundings.
Using classic techniques of forging, raising, and sinking to form the objects; these items can further be embellished via application of stones, chasing and repousse, patina, or other techniques to enhance the overall design.
Within this site you can view my portfolios, read my blog The Adventures of an Aspiring Silversmith, learn more about me, see how a hollow form is made, or use the links to find other information. Currently my shop is closed (it was closed on 11-April-2012) as I am redoing those pages.
[Note: Don't just click the fly out menu items, each parent page has information too!]
About the Header Image: This is a close up of the edge of a vessel during raising. As the metal is brought up and in, from a flat sheet, the metal will fold and wrinkle. Why? It is via the raising/hammering process that the metal is redistributed and smoothed which causes the thickness of the metal to actually increases due to the redistribution of the metal.
