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.

now I fabricated all the pieces and made hinges(hinges =moving parts, like a door.don't think i spelled that wright.) from scratch. this pic is made at the forge of my good friend and master willem jonkers III where I dit some overhoures to meet the deadlinge. after that I finished it with pumice stone(bit primetive but it works the best for an even surfice. try it) sandpaper and then policing.
