Crinkle Cut Hoops in 18k Yellow Gold
Inspired by the ancient Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures, Adam creates a myriad of organic shapes and whimsical creatures utilizing the same concept. Sheets of thin rolled gold are softened, and tiny polished pliers are used to create folds in each piece under a microscope. While some shapes call for 8 to 10 folds to complete, more intricate pieces need several hundred pieces for completion.
