In this silver jewelry series, Kaminer Haislip explores the action of twisting silver wire together like a bird would do with branches and twigs. She handcrafted the jewelry individually in her local studio, so even though each piece is similar, they are not identical from the hand formed process. The tension put into the silver from the intertwining and wrapping techniques makes it very strong. Therefore, the jewelry pieces are very durable and sturdy, even though they appear delicate.
Haisilp's Twisted Jewelry Series was inspired by Patrick Doughtery's site-specific sculpture installation Betwixt and Between, located in the Gibbes Museum glass atrium.
