About

I started making jewelry several years ago when I discovered that sterling silver didn't bother my sensitive ears. I fell in love with the process and it quickly spiraled out of control! After a couple of years, I wanted to learn more about fabrication and making my own components so I enrolled in metalsmithing courses at my local community college. I loved working with the torches and raw materials so much that I just had to have my own studio. Since my kids are grown, I took over their "playroom" and turned it into my own little sanctuary complete with torches, tools and lots and lots of metal.

Because of my own experience with finicky ears, I pay close attention to detail when constructing all of my jewelry, especially earrings. There's nothing worse than ear wires that scratch and irritate your ears. I will always list the gauge of my ear wires so you can be sure that what you're getting will…

There's nothing worse than ear wires that scratch and irritate your ears. I will always list the gauge of my ear wires so you can be sure that what you're getting will be right for you. 20 gauge seems to be the standard for ear wires in the U.S. I usually use 21 or 22 gauge which is a smidge thinner and therefore more comfortable if you have sensitive ears.

When I photograph my pieces, I try to include a shot that shows scale. If I can, I show necklaces on a model, rings on my fingers (please excuse the wrinkles), and bracelets on my wrist. For sanitary reasons, I do not photograph my earrings being worn, though. You can be sure that the earrings you receive have never been worn by anyone.
