Hello- All of the products you will find here are made through and through entirely by me.

I enjoy creating and am continually moving towards refining my craft and following my curiosities.
I am open to accepting custom orders for books, jewelry and blades. Please don't hesitate to contact me about questions regarding my products, processes, and materials.
