Sapphire Patchwork Pendant by Angela Gerhard. The rectangular shape has a center of copper that has been hand-embossed in a hydraulic press to have an asymmetrical patchwork pattern. It is enameled and fired several times on both sides, and hand-stoned in-between each firing to reveal the raised copper pattern.
010. Daria Salus has been working with small metals for almost two decades. She is inspired by images and patterns in nature, and much of her imagery is derived from her own photographs taken in and around Santa Cruz County. Daria uses a photo-etching process to bring those images into her metal work, and many of her pieces incorporate transparent enamels to add color while allowing the image to show through. www.dariasalusjewelry.com
