Suzan Rezac Metal Inlay

I am captivated by the beautiful metal inlay of Suzan Rezac's jewelry. I believe I have posted her work before but I found some new pieces she has made and am falling in love again. She uses the technique of metal inlay which you can see her video of here.

There are several ways to do the technique of metal inlay, it is the process of permanently inserting wire or sheet of one metal into the surface of another type of metal. Then she patinas the metal and that is where the real contrast of colors comes from.

This last necklace is made to look like pottery shards, I truly love her craftsmanship.
