Chrysalis by David Barnhill 2007

Here is one of my boxes. My work at this time is dealing with searching and often finding distortions of what we are actually looking for. Imagination often fills in the gaps instead of fact.

[b]Neoclassical Feminine Ornamental Jewelry of the Greek Golden Age[/b]

| | | | | | | | | | | |

Where has all the beautiful neoclassical 'art' jewelry gone? No, I don't mean from the last century or two, but the techniques and eye pleasing results of work that not just anyone knows how to make anymore? Greek golden age neoclassical art jewelry is a very slim catagory these days. The art is nearly lost and the techniques are not shared openly enough to bring it back from the brink. What I personally think is worst...is that everything from shapes to shapelessness, blobs and empty shells of metal both precious and non are passing for fine art and begging for understanding and meaning when, like a poem, it is really only there for the very few.

Copper & Silver Spiral Pendant

This was just an experimental piece which I almost destroyed. But I kind of like it anyway. It's a domed copper disc with a silver hammered spiral and smooth silver dots.
