About the artist:
Founded in 1988 by Lisa and Scott Cylinder, Chickenscratch is a sophisticated, intelligent and fun line of handmade craft jewelry. Most of their jewelry is made from brass sheet and wire that is hand cut and manipulated, often incorporating copper and sterling silver. With formal training in jewelry and metalsmithing, Lisa and Scott have developed a unique patination process that enables them to achieve the rich blue/black, violet, mocha and amber colors found on much of their work. They also use bright, semitransparent enamel paint over raw brass and plated elements adding bold accents of color to the more earthy tones of the patinas and metals. Pin backs are their own design made of stainless steel, hand sharpened and sprung. Ear posts are surgical steel and ear wires are either sterling silver or gold-filled.
Hand-crafted in the U.S.A.
