I am a metalsmith. I make silver jewelry. I like simple, clean lines, matte silver, turquoise cabs, and patinated copper. At times my work is very modern, minimal and streamlined, other times it is earthy, rustic, and organic. I am heavily influenced by nature and natural forms.
There are two main approaches to metalsmithing, Casting and Construction. I practice small metal Construction, (also referred to as Fabrication.) I start with raw materials in the form of sheet, wire, and tube and build my pieces using saws, hammers, files, torch, and other assorted tools. Metalsmithing is a slow meditative process. I pay great attention to details and craft. Many hours are spent, designing, and constructing each piece.
I am currently showcasing several different jewelry collections in my Etsy store. Here's a quick rundown on what they are:…
