Gail Williams' Profile
I am a Contemporary Art Jewelry Designer living in the mountains of Western North Carolina near Asheville.
I work mostly in Silver and Copper but also love the ability Enameling gives me to create little "Jewelry Paintings"
I prefer Argentium Sterling Silver due to the fact that is highly tarnish resistant. The benefits of argentium sterling silver are numerous. Argentium is manufactured with a lower level of copper alloy, and replaced with a germanium alloy. Copper is what causes tarnish to begin with - so decreasing the amount of copper in silver decreases the possibility of tarnish. I also Love Copper for its color and the way it looks with Silver. And as for Enamels... Well, Being a painter (and colorist) The beautiful colors of enamels suit me just fine and enable me to transfer some of my painting creations to jewelry... The best of both worlds!!!...
