See Earrings Oxidised Silver - Vikki Kassioras
Vikki Kassioras is a contemporary jeweller working from a city studio in Melbourne. Influenced by her long interest in classical mythology and archaeology she utilises the ancient goldsmithing technique of fusing. This technique utilises the natural properties of sterling silver to bond when heated to a high temperature. This allows her to design works that contain no or very little solder and so retain the purity and integrity of the metal.
These feature a bird in flight in relief and intaglio. Oxidised sterling silver and measure approx 38mm in length.
