The Water Buffalo Weights

The Water Buffalo Weights



The silver section of Eastern Winds, inspired by the fauna of the Savannah. You can't have an ode to Eastern Africa without showcasing the wildlife that makes the lands feel so full and rich. Excited to share with you these creatures less celebrated, but endlessly deserving! 🐅🌞✨


This design is extra special to me as the photograph that inspired it has remained the lock screen on my phone since the trip. Countless times a day I see this Water Buffalo Skull, and everytime I return to that moment. It feels impossible to convey how special it is to see it turn into metal. With all of these fauna pieces, but especially these.


I hand fabricated these Water Buffalo Skulls from four seperate layers of sterling, each. Each layered marked in ways to bring forth the dimension and texture of the skull and horns.  The hoops themselves, made for stretched ears,  stamped with similar patterns you see running throughout the entire collection. I really love these beauties!   


The hoops have a dimension of 2 5/8".  

The skulls themselves measure  2 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" tall.

The weights are 10g.

They measure roughly .83 oz a piece.

    A three part, mixed metal collection, five years in the making. Inspired by a month I spent in August of 2017, with my mother, in Kenya and Tanzania. A huge trip we shared in both celebration and mourning. It was life changing. I came home and drew this collection, although initially much larger... but then my life changed again. Everything was put on hold. This collection (and the handful of copper pieces I made first) all were tabled in the corner of my studio ever since. 

    Now, after all these years of working on other aspects of my life, it finally became clear I was ready to finish what I started, and to clear those cobwebs from my memory, and cast these idea back into the wind. 


    The copper/vulture, the brass/sun, and silver/fauna sections, now a whole collection. Set with African Vulture feathers, Egyptian Geese feathers, life casted Wildebeest teeth, and sparkling Raw Tanzanian Sunstone, all found in the wilds of the Serengeti. Images created in metal from photographs I personally took. Inspired by textiles I've decorated my studio with. I'm so thrilled to release this deeply personal, cathartic, and now, only joy filled, collection with you all! 🐅🌞✨
