Black Capstan

Black Capstan

Brooch

Fine silver (oxidised); Steel

2009

Another piece drawn from an old VCR chip board, I always had a great fascination with these as a child. I used to peer through the video slot to see the slightly tilting capstan. It’s the tilt that really interested me (and still does), in this miniature world of mechanical parts something that has been intelligently placed off angle catches your eye.

 

The silver is partially blackened though the black fades out into raw silver across the bend metal.

 

This brooch was featured in 500 Silver Jewelry Designs, published by Lark Craft and Curated by Talya Baharal.
