Ira Sherman, Wristlet, 1986, cast and forged 14k yellow gold, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © Ira Sherman, Gift of Ronald Stange in memory of his mother, Edith O. Stange, 2002.84
Ira Sherman refers to jewelry as his “prime resource” for larger works. The artist employs gold mesh as a visual focus in Wristlet, whose lyrical design demonstrates his appreciation for the “limitless mechanical, ductile, structural, and aesthetic qualities” of metal.

“When I make something I'm certainly doing something that's from my heart, and that intrigues me and is compelling to make and beautiful, but I want it to engage the public.” Artist quoted in Digital Newsroom, 2003
