Katherine Y. Startup's Profile
StartupSterling is my little project. I am Katherine Startup. I take pure 999 silver and alloy it to either 925 or 950 Sterling Silver. My technique is fabrication and not casting. This means that all items are made by manipulating silver wire and sheet that I mill . I have done much self study and have taken master classes from Peruvian metal workers in South America.
Lately I have been trying to buy recyclable sterling silver from other silver artists and I refine and re-work it to be able to use it again. This is my little way of feeling green :o)
