About

Jewelry from Nature

Welcome to Prairie Sage Silver! My name is Cindy and I am a silversmith located in South Dakota, Midwestern USA.

From the windswept prairie grasslands to the imposing rocky mountains, the
serene reflection in pristine blue lakes to untamed wildlife roaming freely, I draw inspiration from the nature surrounding me.

Coming from an artistic background, I am propelled by an innate force of creativity. I was painting for years before moving on to vintage jewelry, taking old pieces and reworking them to create unique designs. During this time, I experimented with a new process of soldering and became fascinated with metals. As I evolved as a designer, I resolved to elevate my artistry. I began to learn and teach myself the
craft of silversmithing. It invigorates me to take a piece of metal in its raw form and use my hands to transform it into something of beauty. I realized this was what I wanted to focus on and eagerly devoted myself to honing my skills. Like a flower that blossoms in spring, my creative calling has been found.

The eye of a designer is one that pays attention to details. During my outdoor adventures of hiking and camping, I become a keen observer. From the texture of elm twigs to the resilience of iris seed pods and the delicateness of hydrangea petals, I am driven to capture these fine details. By combining these organic materials with my silversmithing expertise, I transform a part of nature into
wearable art.

Through this journey of discovery, I learned the importance of listening to one’s heart and experienced the power of chasing dreams. This strength as represented by my growth as a silversmith is one which I wish to share with you through my designs. Just as there is beauty in the nature that inspired my work, I believe there is beauty in each of us, accentuated and emboldened by the connection we feel when we look within ourselves and live a life filled with mindfulness and kindness. I aspire to reflect these qualities in my jewelry so that you will also be inspired when you
wear these exquisite pieces.
