Steel Face Mask

Last semester I was commissioned by Malcolm Jonathan Rio to design and build a facial piece for his macabre photo shoot. In a little less than a week, I was able to throw this thing together.

It's high gauge steel wire forged and welded to suit the structure of the female face- my first shot at true jewelry. The steel band rests over the ears and slides behind the head, and can be adjusted with a twist of the pliers.

I'd like to do some more like this, but way more complex. I was under a stiff deadline for this one, but with a little more time, I think I could cook up something a bit more devilish.
