Nautilus Creations -
Look for new items to be posted as I master new weaves and play with new techniques in metal. My favorite materials are stainless steeel, copper and bronze but I also work in niobium, titanium, brass, bright aluminum and anodized aluminum.
My newest discovery is using flame to 'paint' a metal - most notablu copper. Combined with hammering, other components such as pearls, stones and maille this gives another dimension to a piece and is a guaranteed one of a kind!
WHERE TO BUY
You can see my work on display at the Bottlebrush Gallery, Harmony, PA. Please stop by and browse this wonderful gallery and support local artisans!
I became an admirer of the ancient craft of making maille (or chainmaille) and strive to create wearable art using variants of weaves originally used to protect medieval warriors.
Each piece is meticulously hand-crafted by opening and closing individual jump rings and may incorporate pearls, beads or semi-precious stones.
My favorite metal is stainless steel - the alloy I work with is both Surgical and Marine grade - as it is so durable and works well with other metals.
