Facts about Meteorites in General....
Meteorite falls, also called observed falls, are meteorites collected after their fall from space was observed by people or automated devices. All other meteorites are called "finds".
As of June 2012, there are about 1,103 documented falls that are listed in widely used databases, most of which have specimens in modern collections.
Notes about my process:
I typically will take a 20 gram meteorite and chisel it down to 4 grams or so. My process of shaping and smoothing is very labor intensive and particular. I look at each meteorite and it's unique qualities before I set about shaping. I feel it's important to showcase natural aesthetics of the meteorite while translating it into wearable art. Personally it is important to me that the meteorite still look like a meteorite to be a talking piece and give the wearer a special connection to the "great beyond"
Meteorites get EXTREMELY hot. To keep a meteorite "stable" you can not use coolants. So my process must be slow and I will work on many meteorites at the same time as I must put each one aside several times to cool off.
