Announcement   Custom Made Jewelry Nature Inspired Bird Jewelry My jewelry designs are nature inspired with fine silver and other mixed metals.

Most of the material used is PMC, precious metal clay. The clay is rolled out and stamped, then fired in my kiln. Once the organic material is burned off it leaves .999 % fine silver.

The other metals used are sterling silver, copper or brass. Each piece is hand cut from a sheet of metal and filed to smooth edge, put into a tumbler for a final polish to bring it to that bright “copper kettle” finish. Each is hand stamped or etched with a design.

The patina gives each piece that beautifully dark antique look. Each piece is sprayed with a clear coat, but are not water proof.

About

My journey in life with birds of prey.

My love for birds of prey has been with me most of my life. My fascination with raptors evolved from bird watching with a pair of binoculars to my best hunting partner in the field through the art of falconry.

My years with the art of falconry would give me endless hours of the privilege to be part of a raptors life. As a woman in the sport, there seemed to be a void for expression of these beautiful raptors through jewelry.

This void stayed with me most of my life and came to fruition designing jewelry ten years ago with my friend and co-owner Debbie Jenkins. We have an ESTY store together: Wyominghammered.etsy.com.

I took my falconry expression in jewelry and opened Longwingerstudio to offer a separate store for people that share my heart and joy of birds of prey and the wonders of the outdoors.

I hope you will enjoy my jewelry as well as I love to design it.
