Chained Reaction

Cheryl Fulcher

Cheryl Fulcher’s jewelry is art in metal.  Growing up by the ocean in West Vancouver, she developed a natural attraction to the flow and balance of nature.  With the influence of invention and attention to detail, she was destined for creativity.

In 1988 she took her first jewelry course at George Brown College and ended up being a perpetual night class student for many years.  She took a variety of courses learning various techniques such as fabricating, wax carving, lost wax casting, silversmithing, stone setting, jewelry design and repair.

In 2004, Chained Reaction came into existence.  Starting from various gauges of sterling silver and copper, she hand-winds wire into links making timeless classics and captivating original designs.  Her chain link earring and pendants are accented by semi-precious beads and stones.  Two of her original designs have been published in Lark Books “Chain Mail Jewelry, Contemporary Designs from Classic Techniques.”

Recently she has been exploring the joys of forging metal on her anvil.  Through carefully placed hammer strikes, metal can be coaxed into fascinating twists and turns creating 3 dimensional pieces of art.
