Awareness Through Adornment

Chaos Dog Tag


Chaos.  This hand fabricated dog tag was sawed, sweat soldered , hammered and patinated in 2000.  The symbolism is my  simple interpretation of the creation.  A giant bird laying an cosmic egg into the primeval sea giving form to chaos.  The golden yolk giving life to the sun and enabling the division of earth and sky. 

These 2 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 inch patinated tags hang from a 17 inch brass ball chain.  

Oh, the flowing funky vibe of NYC.  Days & nights blending together making jewelry, tending bar & studying Tai Chi.  The hand built dog tags were inspired by the Strand bookstore, endless banter & dancing with friends.  Today this collection is cast into sterling silver.  I have many more designs drawn from my New York days yet to come.  This is a collection of Bold symbolism, representing feeling tough and being vulnerable at the same time.
