While visiting Savannah, Georgia one spring, we were quite taken with the beauty and peaceful qualities of the city squares. A series of 24 lush, green squares sprinkled with flowers, fountains, statues, and places of rest, can be found throughout the city, each with it’s own beauty and history. Enjoyed by residents and visitors alike, every day, these squares inspired me to design the first pieces in my “Savannah Squares”collection.
I created the rich texture on each Argentium Silver square form by impressing Spanish Moss into the metal, a nod to the live oaks, festooned with it, everywhere, throughout Savanah. I formed these pieces by hand using hammers and stakes and traditional metalsmithing methods.
My wish for you is to feel my memory of peace and beauty with your chosen “Savanah Squares” design!
I usually design and create One of a Kind and Limited collections of handcrafted Jewelry. In keeping with that format, my ” Savannah Squares” Collection evolved to the next series with “Squares” as the hallmark feature; texture patterns on the metal vary and first introductions include dimensional, fabricated pieces with a raw silk like texture.
Watch for more designs, which will be added from time to time as the spirit moves me, perhaps combined with some of our “Stones & Fossils”.
