About

I really enjoy making one-of-a-kind items. Wire wrapping is my favorite discipline. Pendants, rings, rings with "Cabs" or "snapsets". With wire wrapping, there is no soldering, riveting or bolting, it's all in the way the item is wrapped. After wire wrapping,Chain mail chains are another favorite. Byzantine, Inca Puno, Jens Pind are my 3 favorite.

I use Argentium® Sterling Silver a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. It will not turn black!

Also used is 14/20 Gold filled. 14/20 (or 1/20th 14Karat) gold-filled, or gold overlay, is made by heat and pressure bonding a thin layer of gold to a brass core. The 1/20 notation refers to the ratio of the 14 Karat gold layer to the brass layer by weight, which is 5%.

It is a superior product to gold plate as it contains much more gold.
