All the silver sheets and wire I use are eco friendly precious metals. I am constantly hunting for unusual gemstones to create one of a kind or limited edition pieces. My emphasis is on craftsmanship, design, and wearability; my preference is hand fabrication/construction and working directly with the metals instead of waxes and castings. Each piece of jewelry is comfortable to wear, whether for everyday enjoyment, as heirloom keepsake, or as fun statement pieces.
