Silver and gold hand forged artisan jewelry from the lost coast of California

In the hills of rural northern California, I live way out in an area called the lost coast. Shop practices are eco friendly as are shipping and packaging.

A gold and silver smith with over 22 years experience, I make every piece of jewelry in my shop entirely by myself, using the traditional metalsmithing techniques of forging (moving metal with hammers), fabricating (connecting formed metal with solder), and fine stone setting. I love working with metal, it has been a lifelong obsession.
I hope you enjoy your visit to the 2 trick pony shop.

My designs are unique, original, entirely my own, and created one at a time by my own hand in my studio, using the age old methods of forging and fabricating.

Frequently asked questions
For international sales, how are VAT and DUTIES paid?

VAT and Duty is the responsibility of, and paid by the customer.
NO VAT is included in the price of any item in this shop.
UK buyers take heed as VAT charges start at a low threshold and include a ridiculous £8 charge for transferring funds in addition to the tax.

Do you ever offer discounts or have sales?

the short answer is a simple no; I make jewelry that is one of a kind or made to order, so there is never a reason to have a sale. As far as discounts, I price my work at the lowest price possible, everyday. Many shops add 10% to their prices and then give you a discount. This seems silly to me, I don't like playing silly games with prices.
