Hi I am a Christian artist and I love putting God's Word into silver. God's Word will uplift, comfort, guide, assure, teach, and give us wisdom. His Word is forever! I generally do my own designs & ideas but my customers can design their own piece, and my mold-maker at times comes up with ideas for me. The silver clay is rolled out, cut out, dried & sanded, then kiln-fired for 2 hrs at 1650 degrees (important for sintering the metal, so it won't be brittle & shatter if dropped), brass-brush it, burnish, antique, polish & harden in a rock tumbler, finally put a tarnish/scratch resistant metal lacquer on the front, then embellish with crystals, jumpring, chain, and mail it to you! Just about any name, quote, scripture can be used.

Each silver pendant is an heirloom piece and is made to be handed down for generations to come. What better way to be remembered by our loved ones,…

My husband and I have been doing mission work in Acuna, Mexico since 2003. We give 10% of our profits to the work there. Generally we will go with a different pastor for a week & visit his homebound & handicapped adults & children . We take wheelchairs, adult diapers, anything anyone gives us to minister to God's people. All of this to tell them about Jesus, who died for our sins that we might have eternal life with Him (John 3:16). We say we bring a temporary fix so that they may hear of the eternal fix- Jesus Christ. He is for us, not against us, and He is good all the time!

My love of handmade was passed down from my grandmother & mother. Grandma taught me how to crochet, and my beautician mom used to style my art teacher's hair in exchange for art lessons for me :) ! Most important though was their love for Jesus. Because they passed on their faith in the redemptive work of Christ to me, today I live, and my children live, and my grandsons live! Thank you Father God!
