Fossilized shark teeth, cultured pearls, sterling silver chain, sterling silver wire, lobster clasps
What was your inspiration?
A member of my family brought me hundreds of shark teeth and asked me to make her something, this is what I came up with.
What are you most proud of?
I like the asymmetry, and the combination of these delicate and ferocious materials.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Wire wrapping an object that has no hole, like shark teeth takes some practice. Get dead soft or annealed wire for sure, to make the process easier. Treat the organic object like a briolette, and make sure however you wrap it that it's stable, no wiggles!
