Ssssssumptuous Tea was created using the jewelry technique of chasing and repoussé to embellish the surface with a python in the jungle outstretched to catch a flying beetle. The handle and base are cold forged sterling silver wires. A hidden hinge allows the lid to open and stay in position so the viewer can peek inside to find a forged branch of silver with a small, silver, repoussé bug. The inside of the vessel has been 24k yellow gold plated This piece was designed, not as a functional piece, but a decorative piece for the viewer to explore.
