    What is Anticlastic?

    You will see pieces of my jewelry advertised as "anticlastic", but what does this mean?  Anticlastic raising is a unique technique I use in my designs.  Bending metals (copper, sterling silver or argentium silver) is my favorite form of metal forming.  I stretch the metals creating a concave curve on the outer surface.  This compresses the given metal creating a convex curve in the middle of the metal.  Liken it to a bowl.  This technique creates very unique designs.  It is my preferred method of metal forming creating unique and special jewelry.   Try it out and see the compliments you receive.
