Ocracoke On My Mind 3 - 2005

Ocracoke On My Mind 3 ( Image Info )


This series was inspired by one of my favorite places on earth, Ocracoke Island, North Carolina. The photos are originals that I took there this summer.

On the front is a close-up view of the Ocracoke Lighthouse in all its majesty. On the back is Howard Street which is a winding sandy Live-Oak lined little path through heaven. This piece can be worn either way.

I sandwiched my photos between two 1.25 inch round pieces of glass, I then soldered them with lead-free silver solder. The jump ring and spring ring are sterling silver, and a 24" steel ball chain is included.

These works are one-of-a-kind originals. I've made each by hand, and no two are alike. I love the rough industial feel of the solder that makes each one unique. The round shape gives the feel of a porthole, and I like that as well.

Please see the next image to view the back of this piece.
