From hand-carved stones to the final details, The Last Link Jewelry offers an eclectic take on modern adornment. Each piece starts with a foundational element – a coil of wire, a sheet of metal, an undecorated stone or a crystal – and, through a variety of processes, something different is born from what might otherwise be discarded.
The notion of making something beautiful or useful from something that someone might consider to be useless is central to the process. Each one-of-a-kind piece is hand fabricated, from the bails, bead caps, to bead cages and even head pins whenever possible. The connection to the work by hand – forming, soldering, melting, hammering, is completed using hand tools, allowing the artist a unique sense of intimacy with each piece.
