HAND FABRICATED FINE ART JEWELRY
It all started in New Brunswick, New Jersey..........way back in 1972. I had opened a small antique shop down town amidst all the Rutgers students, hippies, Greasy Tony's on the corner, Viet Nam goin' on.........it was an interesting time in history to say the least. I also had a partner, "Fast Eddie," who knew how to make jewelry. After watching him for two years and numerous trips into New York City to deal with the jewelers and suppliers there, I said to myself "Hey! I can do this too".........bought a bunch of tools and never looked back.
95% of my work is hand fabricated from gold(14k up to 24 karat), silver, and platinum wire and sheet of varying shapes and gauges. The remaining 5% is done using the lost wax casting method. I'm inspired by beautiful stones and random thoughts and designs that run thru my mind. All the materials I employ are genuine...................the real deal..........no synthetics.............all my pieces are properly stamped and hallmarked. The workmanship on all my pieces, whether you like the design or not, is perfect.........that is my goal!
My skills with camera do not equal my skills on the jeweler's bench. So, if the picture looks good to you, you will really be pleased with the piece In person.
