This past week I enjoyed examining the art work of Brittnee Forline. Her artwork is crafting jewelry. In her galleries she had a fantastic display of beautiful artistic jewelry. As we spoke I could not help but ask about her inspiration for her work, and she explained that most of it came from fantast stories and video games such as Legends of Zelda and Lord of the Rings.
My favorite piece was a necklace of a pouch containing arrows for the archer. She told me that it is inspired from the character Zelda.
Brittnee is currently attending her last semester at CSULB. She will be earning a BFA emphasizing in metal works. Her favorite metal to work with is silver because of the color and the ability to wear it around without causing any skin problems.
Brittnee also explained the interesting process of jewelry making. She told me that wax molds are made and that will be used as a cast. After its done they melt out the wax and poor in the rich stuff to make the jewelry.
