Hand crafting silver & gold jewelry on the shores of Lake Simcoe, I forge, cast and fabricate to original designs.

All my rings are hand carved & cast using the lost wax process, so there is a total absence of solder seams

I hand carve each ring and pendant individually in wax, and then, for health and safety reasons send my wax to a caster in Toronto to hand cast each piece for me. This is called the lost wax process, as each wax is destroyed in the burn out process. The consequence of this is that each piece is one of a kind and totally unique. The resulting silver or gold returns to me in an extremely raw state which I then finish through progressing stages by hand to a finished piece of jewelry

I've recently started publishing a blog where I discuss my ideas, my love of metal and the metalsmithing processes:
