Every piece of jewelry Pat Flynn makes is hand forged. Displaying meticulous craftsmanship Pat often incorporates fused 22 karat gold onto the iron. According to the artist, “What attracts me to my work is the dichotomy that exists between materials and processes. The wildness of forging juxtaposed with elegant goldsmithing techniques. I am interested in the underlying tension that results from combining disparate materials such as steel and diamonds or gold and steel, in organic forms. My hope is that my work will go out into the world and communicate for me.” Pat’s work can be found in the collections of museums around the world.
