Where do I find the curious metal pieces for my jewelry? My husband Bob Wislinski is chief finder. He happily walks roadways and parking lots for exercise and to find raw material for Entangled Jewelry. Some days he happens upon a debris field and fills his pockets. But one morning this week, I made the find.

I finished my run that grey morning up the street and saw that the apartment bloc there was rubble. Smashed. Condensed to so little. Soon to be erased. I walked the front edge of the debris and marveled at the shattered structure. Finds perhaps? Of course! At my feet lay scattered workings of some electronic device. I happily scooped them up and walked the post-run cool-down stretch home.

The rubble.

The finds.

The choice find. Stay tuned to see what it becomes.

I'm featured in Columbia Living Magazine

Rachel Haynie penned an "art seen" feature in Columbia Living Magazine on my creative pursuits. I love how Rachel structured the article, citing the creative spaces I move through each day. In the photo accompanying the online article I stand at my table amid collections of findings, tools and my creations. An artist's soulful chaos!

Here's the link to the online article. Please check it out!

Found metal makings

Here are a few of the pieces I've crafted over the past few months using beautifully-surfaced found metal. I sorted and organized by collections during late summer. Such a tantalizing wealth of material!

Xs & Os: a recycled button and richly-textured found metal in playful combination. Recycled rollo chain.

Worn rounds: 2 found washers stacked with lovely road patina behind pitted ground. Brass chain.

Circles fit: a flange piece slips into place for this found metal pendant. Recycled sterling silver rollo chain and brass chain.

Mystery fittings: a play of brass and silver-tones; the brass hex piece caps a beautiful, unidentified piece. Recycled chains.

Arch answered: Found metal of echoing shapes connected with recycled links and brass rings. Brass chain.

new necklace set

I took advantage of a recent cool morning to photograph some new pieces. "Cool" is a relative term on a South Carolina morning, and means that you don't sweat when standing still in the shade. This new set recycles a found tire weight, copper wire of two gauges, copper pipe, snake chain, and cable chain. Only the earring wires are new.

Entangled still!

Delivered new work to Gallery West recently. Included was this necklace. Its pendant marries a nicely-weighted washer and flat piece, both found metal and nicely road-etched. The finds are wrapped with sterling silver half-round wire and hung on curb chain with a coiled link accent, all also recycled. Stop in and see at Gallery West, 118 State St., West Columbia.
