Where my hammer meets the metal

My interest began as a kid watching my father in his workshop. He was always welding and hammering on something, usually some piece of farm equipment. One day I started tinkering with old tools and re-bar and created outdoor animal sculptures. That was the spark that led to creating smaller pieces and eventually jewelry.

I manipulate the metal with hand tools and hammers using old world techniques; in other words nothing high tech! I heat the metal to make it soft and easy to form. Then shapes are created with various pliers and hammers and off to the solder bench for joining. That's where things come to life. After a soak in a warm "pickle" (acid bath) the pieces are tumbled to harden and polish. Sometimes I'll add a dark patina to bring out the texture and character. Each little work of art is meant to be worn often and not sit waiting for that special occassion.

I never dreamed that I would ever end up doing what I do for a living, and loving it so much! My work reflects my life....simple and joyful!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING VIA US POSTAL SERVICE PLEASE NOTE:

OnTheBend is not VAT Registered and prices do not include VAT. Etsy inserted the statement on listings that VAT is included but this is an error on their part. VAT is not included on any of my listing prices.

While packages can arrive as quickly as 7 days (this has been my experience), they may take 2 to 3 weeks and in rare cases can take as long as 6-8 weeks to arrive when shipped internationally. The speed with which they travel once they leave the US is out of my hands--if there is a delay it is usually at the point of customs in the destination country.

International customers are responsible for duties and taxes levied on imports. Please check your country's rules and fees for more information before purchasing.

Non-receipt: If you have not received your package after a reasonable time please let me know. In most of my experience shipping internationally, packages have arrived within two weeks.
