Copper and Misc. Jewelry
These are some of my Jewelry creations. Almost 90% of these are made with recycled copper and other materials. One thing they have in common is that they all were forged in fire. In 2020, September 18, the Bobcat fire in California burned down my house. During the coming days and weeks I would sift through the charred debris looking for anything I could salvage. Well I did not find anything except I noticed all the beautiful copper pieces that were melted and covered with multicolour patina. So I collected anything that would catch my eye. Later I made Jewelry from these pieces. It acted as a meditation during those tough days, months and years. The fire also took my beloved pet dog Zangi who was Armenian Gampr. I dedicate all my Jewelry to Zangi. I also call the Jewelry collection ZangiArt.
