Chains in Chains
Chains in Chains
etching and brass
12" x 12"

This piece was created while apprenticing with a jeweler. I wanted to explore how metal could mingle with my work beyond the plates that created my prints. The image was created with a pineapple crochet pattern that was a favorite of my grandmother. The crocheted lace was impressed into a soft ground plate. The print was pierced by jump rings strung with brass chain meant to mimic the chain stitches of the lace.
