Inspirations (Arline Fisch)

One of my favorite jewelry making books, out of a substantial collection, is Arline Fisch's Textile Techniques in Metal. It's not surprising--fibers and metals are my two main crafty passions, so the intersection is really inspiring and exciting to me.

My favorite work Fisch makes are her large neckpieces. To me, these pieces are intricate, bold, tribal, and really amazing. On a technical level, Fisch's style makes me want to try a million different things with fine gauges of wire and sheet. Doing any substantial project with weaving, knitting or crocheting in metal is still on my to do list, but someday I really hope to give this style of work a try.
