Tear-Shaped Copper Top and Silver Pendant

Tear-Shaped Copper Top and Silver Pendant

Highly polished copper and silver balance one another as the warmth of rich copper softly dips in with its concave shape with cool silver acts as copper’s base. This piece is very tactile, the shape is inviting to touch.

The rich reds and purples of the copper are drawn out by highly heating it. I never know exactly how the copper will look before I heat it, though that is the beauty of the process. This once reminds me of the rich colors of a southwestern sunset.

Neptune Rising – Carved Silver Ring

Neptune Rising – Carved Silver Ring

There is an urgency to Matagi’s designs. The carvings appear to have rapid movement, like a fast flowing stream swirling and eddying over and around stones and branches, or the splash and froth of water as an ocean wave curls upon itself. I am amazed that Matagi’s bold carvings create a sense of fluidity in solid silver. His design sense is both skilled and intuitive. — Holly Troy

This ring is squared for an extremely comfortable fit between the fingers and the inner edges of the ring are beveled for smooth wearing. Hand-carved whitened silver, one-of-a-kind.
