What's The Catch?

Project Description: Unique hinged bracelet with hidden, keyhole catch is fabricated from heat-treated titanium and argentium. Possible embellishments include cabochons, pearls, water casts, rivets, wire and granules. The workshop includes a variety of techniques including patterning titanium, tab setting a cabochon with a thick wall bezel, fusing Argentium silver, using Robert's "Stinger Riveting System" plus patina, roller printing, forming and finishing.

He has been a popular instructor for several years as he shares his knowledge and enthusiasm with others. Robert often rolls his own sheet silver from ingots and grinds his own stones. Most of his pieces are designed with a lot of texture and layering, givig his work a very distinctive and distressed look.
