At the Gorham Silver exhibit at the RISD Museum. This extraordinary show is closing tomorrow before moving on tour. The desk and chair on the right took more than 10,000 hours and 50 pounds of silver to make. The wood frame is inlaid with ebony, arborvitae, ivory, mother of pearl, and the silver is handmade. Designed by William Codman in 1903 for the St. Louis Exposition where it won Gold Prize. The silver dressing table on the left won Gold at the 1899 Paris Exposition. Amazing craftsmanship, to say the least. By creating show stoppers the company got great press and attracted a broader customer base. In 1910 Gorham employed 3500 workers at its Providence Rhode Island factory.

-Mother Of All Snake Bangle-

Entirely hand fabricated, forged from a 950 silver ingot. A sheet was formed and hammered into a thick tube. The snake head was formed using Repoussé technique from the same sheet. At 66 grams this is not for the faint of heart.

Weight is 66 grams and will size accordingly to your needs.

Please DM me if interested

Work in progress…

Been working on this large Snake bangle which weighs 57 grams. Would look stunning on both women and men.

It’s entirely hand fabricated from a 950 silver ingot. A sheet was formed and hammered into a thick tube. The snake head was formed using Repoussé technique from the same sheet. There’s still some detail of scales to engrave.

Weight is 57grams

I can make it to fit any size wrist.
Please DM me if interested.

Work in progress…

-Ingot Making and forging a band-

The melting point of pure .999 silver is around 960 °C (1760 °F). The flame alone from the alcohol bottle will never come close to this temperature. When combined with air from the blowpipe then it is achievable. Here 10 grams of 999 silver is melted to make an ingot which is then forged nto a band.
