So when I first saw Deborah Vivas' designs under the Vivasmith Studio name...Holy. Cow. That was it. That was all I could say. Her designs utilize mixed metals (which you already know I'm a huge fan of!) and raw stones. But what makes them even more unique is the fact that her's aren't your typical mixed metals. She uses iron, gold and sterling silver. Yup, you heard me...IRON! Let me just say, Iron Man ain't got nothin' on Deb!
Although her website is still under construction, you can follow her on Facebook to keep up on her amazing designs. And, with Valentine's Day just around the corner...you can consider this an iron-clad hint!
|Oxidized iron that has been salt water etched & fused with 20kt gold on a 14kt gold necklace. The pendant size is 2.25 inches by 1 inch. Amazing! It has a very DNA look to it. Maybe a subtle reminder that all matter comes from the Earth?|
|This Vivasmith beauty is another of my Valentine's Day Wish List hints! It is her newest ring & is also made |
with oxidized iron & gold with a green tourmaline as the final flourish.
