earrings: anodized niobium
Playing around with this particular anodizing technique, I find it more controllable because it involves directly ‘painting with amps’. If that didn’t suggest it clearly: yes, it’s an easy way to shock yourself if you’re not careful. These hoops are less than 3/4” across – to get this kind of color detail, there’s not much distance between my hand and a completed circuit. I’m now working with resists to make more defined color effects.

About:

I'm a Boston-based metal artist, working primarily in niobium, silver, and stainless steel.

All pieces shown were made by my own hands. I'm happy to answer any questions about them, probably in excessive detail.
