Pinchforming consists of many rounds of hammering and annealing the copper, to make a raised, curved fold or hogsback. A very thin piece of copper is thereby given high relief through an organic hand-forging process. Gold-filled earwires.

Handmade by David and Reed Bowman in Berkley, California.

David M Bowman Studio consists of two people: David Mills Bowman and his son, Reed Christopher Bowman. David began working in metal in 1971, near the time Reed was born; he first made silver jewelry, later moved on to brass belt buckles, then to larger pieces in patinaed brass. Over the years David has worked alone or with different assistants, but he has worked exclusively with Reed since the mid-1990s. They sell their work at fine retail galleries around the country.
