Sharon Berkan-Dent's Profile
I love combining the mystical world with that of metalsmithing, resulting in tiny sculptures worn as jewelry. I begin by doing a lot of sketching to get the design just the way I want and then I start sculpting in wax. I spend many hours lost in the process forming wax into faeries, dragons, and other mystical beings complete with as much detail as I can include. When the wax is complete I cast it in sterling silver or 14k gold using the lost wax method, I then smooth and polish the cast metal into the finished piece of jewelry. It's time consuming and at times a tedious process, but one that I love.
Thank You for your interest in my shop and all the mystical beings that reside there.
