We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

16 gauge sterling Byzantine Mens Bracelet

 This is a very hefty bracelet and as you can see it weighs 48.1 grams of sterling silver. It's about one and three quarters oz. of silver.
 I made it big enough to fit a man's wrist, however it can be reduced if need be. The hand made jump rings are both plain and twisted. If you look closely you'll see the twisted rings are in threes and form a square rope.
 This is a close up of the closure. I enjoy making the S hook closures because I think its important to be able to put it on your own wrist and this style of closure allows you to do that. I even made Bruce put it on and he had no problem hooking it himself.
I took this photo with the #2 pencil just to give you some idea of the width.
