Fold Forming is a metalsmithing technique that uses relatively thin sheets of metal that are folded multiple times and hammered in specific areas to create innovative and exciting 3d forms for use in jewelry and sculpture. The resulting forms make bold statements that are lightweight and easy to wear. Fold Formed items are commonly made for jewelry in copper and fine silver.
