About

I was a part-time jewelry hobbyist until 2005. For many of us on the gulf coast, 08.29.05 was a turning point for a million different reasons. For me, the loss of both my home and my permanent job to Hurricane Katrina became a blessing. After all of the destruction, I found an avenue for my creativity in working with silver, metals, and many pieces of "old louisiana" that now comprise my art and my jewelry.

Much of the copper you see here came from my home's demolition and was reformed into copper sheet.

What a beautiful way to turn a forgotten bit of metal into a lasting memory.

My designs are a combination of vintage finds, altered objects, and new materials with a lean toward the rustic...i use materials and craftsmanship…

My designs are a combination of vintage finds, altered objects, and new materials with a lean toward the rustic...i use materials and craftsmanship that will last for generations, and offer many pieces that work together and give my customers the option of adding components with each milestone in their lives.

I appreciate the time you've taken to visit my shop and look through my jewelry. I know that in the wide world of etsy there are many sellers to choose from, and in the current economy jewelry isn't always a "must have"

I do my best to keep both my prices and variety at an accessible level, including standing discounts for returning buyers, weekly specials for newsletter and twitter followers, and a special affinity for custom orders.

thank you, again, for stopping at Silver Frog Studio...i hope you find something special.
