Eddie Borgo's work focuses on the history of human culture; his collections feature pieces inspired by both ancient and modern technology and how technolgy intersects with cultural movements.

The humble ball chain is a tiny, but critical component of modern manufacturing. Created with a process called swaging, that uses 100% of a flat metal sheet, ball pins and chains were first used in the early 1900s as light pulls, then became iconic during WW1 when the chain was manufactured for military dog tags. Now modern ball contact pins are used in fluroescent lighting, air bags, radios, smoke detectors, and computer chip boards.

Silver plated and gold plated brass.
