"In my work, I seek to explore ways in which metal can be both soft and hard. Forms can be created which have structure and softness; jewelry can be both adornment and sculpture." Chervitz begins the fabrication of each piece using traditional metalsmithing techniques such as sawing, filing and soldering. Then she finishes by crocheting stitch patterns that determine whether the piece has a soft or linear character. The result is airy, textural and beautiful designs that tickle our sensibilities.
