She signs her jewelry T & R Singer as she continues with his inspired designs. These feathers are made by sawing out the shape of the feathers from a sheet of flat silver. The bottom part is oxidized to turn it black. The designs on the top part of sawed out by hand, with some designs stamped into the silver. The two parts are then soldered together and gently made into a slightly bowed shape.
