khmetalwork's Shop Announcement

American made Craft jewelry. Strong, clean designs. Custom work always welcome. Handmade silver, gold, gemstone rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and objet d'art. What sets my work apart is my attention to detail and finishing. Artisan Designer Jewelry. See my newest work on https://www.facebook.com/Khmetalwork

Solder blobs are filed away, edges are smoothed over, joins are perfectly matched, even the inside of the bezels are polished before I set the stones. I often make my own tools for specific purposes, punches that don't scratch stones, altering commercial tools, cutting my own press dies. I work hard to keep my earrings light without being flimsy, rings feel good on your finger, necklaces don't flip over, I work hard to make jewelry that will last for years and years. I use eco friendly 925 sterling silver, and 18k or 22k gold.

I love sapphires of all colors, pearls, colorful gemstones and found objects; love them all. Everything in the shop is READY TO SHIP, unless otherwise noted.

My artisan jewelry is not dainty; the rings substantial, the chains are sensuous and wonderful and, handmade metal beads are fantastic. I purposefully use my tools to create all my pieces, always mindful that someone will wear this piece and it must be made with my best efforts.

I make most of the metal stock I use in my jewelry, this means I alloy the gold and silver and roll out the metal using a mill to the desired thickness for sheet or bezels. Why? I do this for just one reason, I like to do it. Not because it's better or "more handmade", I just like to do it. The patterns and textures are all manually added to the metal (I love my tools!). Again, I could very easily buy textured metal, there are many great textures from which to choose, but I love the work - even when it doesn't turn out perfectly, I love the work.

The colored stones I use are the natural color (unless noted), no dyes, no irradiation. I wouldn't sell anything I wouldn't proudly wear myself.
