Inspiration and creation of my brother, Daryl Colburn and myself is a patina'd copper cuff with mixed metal piece of copper, silver and bronze soldered on. This particular piece was donated to the American Cancer Society and dedicated to my mother, Mae Colburn and my son in law's brother, Levi Kelly.
(SOLD) Fused copper and silver
This piece is one of many from a new line of fused copper and silver pieces. I love how the silver and copper compliment eachother.
I have always had an inherited artistic gift and
experimented in many medias. Being a great admirer of my brother Daryl, and his art, I have the unique opportunity to be mentored by him and
fulfill a vision that he has for making jewelry. Together with his
inventions and talent I offer my own unique perspective, emotion
and artistic vision. The process that goes into creating a piece has
proven to be an experience of truly bringing life and personality into copper, bronze and silver, capturing a beauty that was unknown in its former state. It is very pleasing to see my work on someone and know that I created it just for them! Many have heard me say to them, "Wear it with joy because it was created with joy". I believe that the Spirit which exist within me is poured into my work and I want to honor God in all that I do. I am blessed to be able to share it with others as this journey unfolds.
