Sonja Voss

Next we have Sonja Voss with Firehazardbeads in Asheville, NC. Interesting story: she grew up in Northern Germany and was the only black human being around (her words). Since being different caused complications, she found hobbies and pursuits that only required one person to fulfill, ergo, jewelry work. This featured necklace can be worn short or long, or as a belt, and is made with sterling silver and copper. I like hand forged and hammered items, the texture is always so unique and fascinating. Check out her blog for other pics of her work.
But be forewarned: her written English is bad.
