Barbara Pliskin creates one-of-a-kind designs that are organic in nature. She manipulates the metal using various methods until the metal works easily. Many of her pieces contain uncut rough stones, as well as certain jaspers representing landscapes and semi-precious stones. She likes to deconstruct the metal and bring it back to together, creating and forging a variety of textures. She uses the Korean method called Kum Boo to apply 24k gold to silver.
