Hand hammered copper and silver married metals and turquoise hanging earrings. The texture of these earrings shimmer in the light. The warmth of copper and the coolness of silver combine to set off three small turquoise stones in each earring.
Reminds me of the sun and the moon – or the Red Rocks of Sedona at twilight.
Entirely hand-fabricated (hand made). No two earrings are alike. 3 inches long, 1/2 inch wide. Signed “Matagi Sorensen” on the back of each earring.
Curved Carved Silver Bracelet
One of my classic designs. This bracelet is curved to fit comfortably around the wrist bone. The carvings catch the light so that this piece glitters in an understated way.
This bracelet harkens back to my childhood growing up in the Sedona area. I find the red rocks and the mountains sneaking into my work often.
This piece is entirely hand-fabricated of silver and copper. It was then blackened to intensify the raised design on the cuff.
Hand-forged Silver Spiral
Reaching – black and white intaglio etching based on memories of rock formations while living in the Sedona wilderness as a child.
