It’s a #throwbackthursday !

Titanium, 22k gold, sterling silver.

An older piece… #tbt

“Lost: Lead by the Head”

Thought I’d throw out a #throwbackthursday
Pin and pendant
Sterling silver, 18k, copper.
Dimensions… unsure, probably around 3″ tall.

Somewhere around 2003… It’s a bit of a touchstone piece for me; it defined a lot of later work.
15 years. Holy crap.

Always happy to see #pitrobotrepair !
Traveling with @lady_salt to visit family… Happy New Year’s, my people.

The matthew.works website sale will be happening! (link in bio)

It’ll start Monday at noon, and last through Friday at midnight. Cyber Monday, small business Saturday, same old Sunday, taco Tuesday… sure, there’s plenty of reasons. I just needed more time with wonderful friends on Thanksgiving, rather than the “rush to buy”. Stick with what’s important! So, my sale starts Monday, after I’ve had some coffee.

All jewelry will be discounted, as well as simple titanium bands. The objects will all have a percentage off, but you’ll have to contact me for that if it’s not listed.

New work will be added every day.
Cheers!

Open road… our anniversary

Love to my lady. It’s our anniversary today.
Hope y’all are having a good day.

It’s an interesting mix that’s comes out of my studio these days. These just shipped:

On the left, a “crossover ring”, titanium and 14k rose gold. This one is especially organic and wonderful. (I’d like to push all my jewelry work further this direction.) On the right, the latest in the R2 bronze rocket series. Bronze and sterling silver.

I’m enjoying this. (Ceramic by the artist Patricia Sannit)
