PROCESS & MATERIALS:
I use a specialized developing process to etch my intricate, hand drawn images into sterling silver or jeweler's grade brass. The etching process is eco friendly.
After the floral image is etched onto the silver, traditional metalsmithing techniques are used to fabricate the necklace. The charm is cut out, shaped, filed and sanded by hand. The jump rings are formed and soldered, and connected to the charms, which hang from handmade french ear wires that are work hardened. To give the earrings a soft antique finish, they are patinated and polished by hand.
All my jewelry is made by me in my studio from drawing the image to be etched, to applying the final polish. I use recycled/reclaimed sterling silver whenever possible and jeweler's grade brass, also known as NuGold or Merlin's Gold. Quality craftsmanship is very important to me as is the look and feel of each piece. How the jewelry moves and hangs, its size, weight, and how it feels to the touch, are all considered when I design and make each piece.
Whether you are purchasing jewelry for yourself or to give as a gift, you are investing in something that is meant to be loved and cherished for a long time to come.
Because each piece is made by hand, the piece you receive may vary slightly from the piece shown in the photograph.
