Welcome to my Etsy shop
I love working with Sterling Silver (925), it's such a forgiving material. It can be shaped, worked, and pushed as far as you are willing to take it.
I am using forging techniques to shape and form the silver and I like the way the surface retains the evidence of the marks inflicted on it.
I may add Gold accents to the pieces (Keum Boo), precious and semi-precious gemstones or unusual cabochons.
My designs are usually one-off. It is impossible to fully replicate a forged piece, but if I can there will be differences due to the characteristics of metal and stones.
These subtle differences are to be celebrated as the mark of a handmade piece made specially for you.
I am always looking into new ways of working with silver, and these designs will eventually find their way into my shop, so keep looking…
