Randi Chervitz

"In my work, I seek to explore ways in which metal can be both soft and hard. Forms can be created which have structure and softness; jewelry can be both adornment and sculpture."

Randi Chervitz is inspired by the endless possibilities of forms in space. She creates pieces that question the traditions of adornment and revel in pattern and line.

Chervitz begins the fabrication of each piece using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as sawing, filing and soldering. Then she finishes by crocheting stitch patterns that determine whether the piece has a soft or linear character.
