Jessie Asensio - Jewelry
Various metals are used in my work. Starting with flat sheets, I manipulate metal by annealing, hammering, twisting, bending, and/or torquing, and then repeat - until it reaches a visual beauty of soft movement. Color is introduced to the metal itself and/or with a cabochon. I make the cabochons using stained glass which is fired multiple times, then each is matched with the metal design. The final pieces hopefully inspire thought or serenity.
