New Moonstone & Fusion Piece
What is fusion you might ask? Many metalsmith actually discover the process of fusion by mistake while soldering or annealing metal.
When the metal reaches the melting point there is a small span of time when the outer layers begin to melt (looks like melting butter) and the interior remains solid. In technical terms you can define the process as; the interior remains “solidus zone” while the surface regions enter the “liquidous” stage. This process allows pieces of metal to fuse or join in welding.
Because of the random process that is time controlled by chance, the process can be very tricky and unpredictable making these composed pieces so special.
A Timeless PendantThis piece is handmade by Levent. This piece holds timeless element, a unique shape that is simple but strong.
A Striking Piece of Jewelry
Here is a new piece from Oz Collection. Although it did not stay long after being created and already has found a new home, we wanted to share this with you.
After fusing fine silver granules onto a reticulated piece of sterling silver sheet , the gold strip was soldered. Afterwards, the setting for the cabochon ruby was prepared. Only after finishing the bail at the back of the piece could the ruby be set. All that was left was polishing and putting a chain through it.
