A Little Bit About AK Mountaintop Mermaid
Welcome to my shop! All of my pieces are inspired from my adventures on the sea to the mountain peaks and everything in between. I respectfully forage and collect as many things as I can from nature to create wearable art that's unique and one-of-a-kind.
Most of my pieces are copper electroformed, which is an intricate process of controlling a metal deposit of copper onto a conductive surface, whether it be an organic or inorganic material. It feels like magic, but it's really just a little bit of science. Each piece takes 24-48 hours from start to finish depending on how thick I want the copper to grow - intricate pieces sometimes even longer. No two pieces are the same and each one comes out with it's own unique characteristics.
My heart belongs to the mountains and my soul belongs to the sea <3
