Organic forms take shape across the 5 fine silver elements of this sterling silver linked bracelet. A clear, robins egg blue, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise holds center with a blanket of 24K gold providing a brush of elegance just below. The fine silver pieces are created in precious metal clay, then fired, leaving only the unique silver elements behind.
For over 25 years, Doris King has been working as a studio jeweler and metalsmith. She is a pioneer of Precious Metal Clay – a process by which clay is impregnated with fine silver, allowing the artist to sculpt organic forms and fire out the clay to reveal unique silver pieces.
Doris’s one-of-a-kind works and limited edition series are hand fabricated and sculpted; fluid and interpretive. She approaches metals with a painterly style, weaving together texture and color. In sterling and fine silver she begins building shape and form, then embellishing with stones, high karat gold, and found objects: Color and texture, a bit of the unexpected, and a story that invites inquiry.
