Each piece is fabricated by hand using such raw materials as sterling silver, copper, brass, and precious stones. Tools and techniques such as torching, soldering, hammering and “trashing” are deliberately utilized to ensure that no two pieces of jewelry are indistinguishable. Autumn respects that every client has his or her own individuality thus each piece should possess its own eccentricities.
There is a certain authenticity about Autumn that is reflected in her work. It is this genuineness that has enabled Autumn Bradley Collections to be so desirable. This is exemplified by one of her recent and most uniquely innovative lines, the Trash Metal Collection®, which has been strongly embraced by both clients and industry artisans alike. During the conception of the line a technique called “trashing” was formulated in which a series of sadistic techniques are brutally applied to a naive piece of metal until the sum of its imperfections equate to perfection. The technique known as “trashing” was coined by Autumn herself and has recently been trademarked under the Autumn Bradley Inc brand. --by Drew Vandewart
