I use fire on some of my jewelry - however I love to return to the simplicity of wirework and wirewrapping. I work primarily in sterling silver and copper with some brass and 14k gold fill thrown in now and then. I love working with metals. I enjoy the process of sawing, hammering, filing and stamping. I use gemstones, pearls, lampworked glass beads, and crystals to add color and sparkle.
