The predominant metal is silver or Argentium® Silver or a combination of both. May be cast, fabricated, forged, assembled or created with any combination of techniques. 

Artist Statement: The first step was to make the two stamps used for the pattern. The rolled ingot is fully stamped, the shape of the bracelet is cut, formed and slightly anticlastic.
