Simple Circles are made out of recycled copper tubing, hand forged by me using fire and hammer. Each circle is a unique shape through this process. The circle is then strung with a brass or copper bead and put onto a 1mm adjustable black cotton cord. This pendant can be worn on its own or in combination with other necklaces to create a fun geometric design on your chest.
I developed the concept for these pendants as part of a project i like to call Pipe Dream. The idea is that this little slice of the pipe represents the small percentage of a pipe dream that is possible. As pipe dreams are often thought of as impossible projects or lofty ideas.
Another aspect to the construction and process of these pieces is their ability to be reproduced by many individuals. So perhaps people with nothing to do would find joy in the process and be able to help others through their work.
Half the profit from each necklace sold will be donated to supporting foundations or contributed to some arts organization that fosters young artists in supporting their dreams.
