- Oxidized sterling silver- Silk thread
Bent Metal is handcrafted jewelry created and carefully executed by Erica Schlueter in Belfast, Maine. Combining silk embroidery and crochet with precious metals, Erica pays homage to fine needle work that has been created all over the world and throughout history.Although Schlueter has been producing jewelry for over 10 years, her main focus is on various aspects of textiles and fibers. She explores ways to combine fiber and textile techniques into her sterling silver and brass jewelry pieces. Using rivets (not solder) and embossing fabric textures into the metal influences design elements in her work. The work is further embellished with fine silk using embroidery and crochet techniques.
