Winter has arrived, no longer hot temperatures here so easier to create new silver jewels. The silver I work with is made from sophisticated recycled silver. it is malleable like clay.
In summer my hands are so warm that when I am working on my pieces they dry too fast and start to crumble. And top of the bill at the end they are baked in a special oven at 800 degrees Celsius (1472°F). The result is 99,99% pure silver.
So you can imagine how warm it gets in my studio!

Fertility, care, nutrition, security, love.
Thousands of female figurines have been found everywhere in the world in various ancient cultures. People venerated the mother Goddess, the creation of life, the divine energy.
The original female figurine comes from 4500 BC. It is found on the Po plain in Northern Italy and measures 6 cm. Thanks to the tapered lower body the figurine can easily be inserted into the ground. It is believed that in ancient cultures they inserted her into the ground in front of the entrance of a house for protection, or for fertility.
The Lady wears a fertility girdle and a red chain. She has short arms and a small head with long hair or a veil.
