my journeyman piece

journeyman piece

To complete my apprenticeship I had to design and make a complex and difficult piece of jewelry which I worked on for an entire week. The theme of my work was “space”, so I designed a planet with craters, that I welded, and a spaceship on the surface of the planet. The planet itself is a sphere within a sphere. If you look through the openings around the equator of the outer sphere you can see the intricate pattern that is granulated on the inner sphere. It has a special mechanism: if you turn the spaceship like a knob, the white gold sphere turns within the yellow gold sphere.
