Copper and glass mosaic necklace. This was a fun experiment, copper is a very soft metal and its very easy to bend it, so it wasn’t difficult to follow the irregular shapes of the mosaic. The only problem with this is that even if you burn the metal after sometime the copper will come out and it will stain the skin.

Silver mount with an ammonoid fossil as the centerpiece. this was a hard piece to work on because of its irregular shape, but I was very happy with the end result.
925 Silver with a swarovski crystal. This a very simple pendant that started been perfectly round and then I deformed so it didn’t look so finish. I made chain and it was the first and it will be the last time I do one.
Black Silver – Ring
Acid burned 925 silver with an application of green sediment jasper. Burning a ring is already peculiar and to make it a bit more interesting I added some decorations in the back even though no one will ever see it.
I made this ring as a statement piece, it’s not the most comfortable to wear (because of its size) but it’s very unique. The stone used in it is a Lapis Lazuli which is the national stone of my country (Chile).
Swarovski crystal with silver mount. It’s a nice traditional ring to display a single stone. Personally this is the most boring and overrated ring to make.
Death Dragonfly Pin
Pin made with silver and a coral finger. This was one of the most difficult works that I tried doing. The concept was to make a pin/dragonfly that looks old, almost like it’s falling apart by time. This is a statement piece it’s not made to be worn all the time. In some places the metal gets very thin and with the continuous contact it will get shinier.
925 silver hair comb. This like all of my pieces was a personal accessory.
Free Style Ring
This silver ring started as a failed project. The supported pieces didn’t come together as I wanted, but I realized that even though the ring was open it didn’t fell off because it got caught by the thickness of the bone in the finger. Then I began to add things that no one would usually have on a ring. Its a fun piece, not a pretty one but fun.
The stone used in this ring is a citrine which is associated to the month of november. The idea in this ring was to expose the stone as much as possible, especially since the shape of it is irregular making it very peculiar and the clarity and quality are very good.
