bullet01 Bombe : convex

bullet01 Beveled : angled planes coming to a knife-edge point in the middle

bullet01 Tapered : wider at one side and narrowing at the other

bullet01 Convertible Elements : one piece worn different ways

bullet01 Hammer Texture : a texture made by a hammer creating small concave depressions in the surface of the metal.

bullet01 Florentine : a texture made by many very small engraved lines in the surface of the metal which gives the metal a soft matte finish as opposed to a shiny finish

bullet01 Satin Finish : similar to Florentine, but the lines are even more delicate, like a brushed surface. This also gives the piece a matte appearance

bullet01 Sand Blast : another method to create a matte finish. The piece is bombarded with an abrasive material, which eats away the top layer and leaves a slightly rough matte finish. No lines are visible as in Florentine and some Satin finishes.

bullet01 Filigree : Intricate wirework, mostly in curvilinear patterns.

bullet01 Bark : texture like the bark of a tree

bullet01 Openwork : Any kind of detailing in which air-space is visible. I.e. Filigree or Piercing

bullet01 Piercing : A type of openwork when the metal is cut into, creating negative space patterns in which air or background space shows through

bullet01 Concept : idea

bullet01 Rough Drawing : sketch

bullet01 Graduated Sizes : Sizes ranging from smaller to larger, usually in an ordered sequence

bullet01Template : A pierced piece of plastic or metal with various open shapes that enable an artist to consistently reproduce standard shapes by tracing the inside of the pierced opening with a pencil. Also a standard for something, like a blank form from which copies can be made and modified without changing the original.
