Titanium is a metalic element, symbol Ti and a specific gravity of 4.5.
First discovered as an element in a black magnetic sand at Menachin, Cornwell, England in 1791. It is an abundant element but is often considered a rare metal due to it's difficulty and expense of separation.
It has a strong affinity to oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. The pure metal has a silvery white color and is extrtemely hard. It can be forged when red hot, but when heated to 600°C, in the presence of oxygen, it burns to titanic oxyde.
The Coloring Process I employ, yelds a very controlled and uniform titanium oxide coating. Titanium oxide is harder than titanium itself and is actually clear. It has no color of it's own. The colors that appears is due to the refraction of light through this very thin clear coating of titanium oxide.
Hand Forged on
The forging of Precious metals is not a very common form of jewelry making today, though the process has a history that goes back to at least 5500 B.C., when the Egyptians are known to have used forging to make copper and bronze tools. My forging only goes back about 25 years and is done on highly polished railroad spikes that I have worked into shapes that lend themselves to the shapes I pursue in my jewelry.
