Silver surfaces are distressed by using very raw and antique blacksmith’s tools.
Thoughtful words, traces, scars or patterns are engraved onto a matrix. Through a transfer process these will turn out embossed on the silver or gold surface.
The mix of different links and chains assembled by hand results in a wild appearance of clear and special pieces.
The classical way of moulding metal is hammering. Silversmiths use polished hammers to give the precious metal its final shape. The polished hammer strokes reflect the light like little mirrors in a slightly irregular way. There is no way to achieve this result with a machine.
Fragments of lyrics are engraved into a matrix and embossed into the metal. Like this the poetic words are there, although just fragmentarily readable. The fragments will never turn out identical. Each piece will have its unique impression.
