Hi and welcome, my name is Kathy but my nickname is Kat.
I mainly work with brass. There are so many possibilities with it. You can bend it to wrap beautiful stones with it, it is very forgiving. I love all the insects and animal stampings that are made with brass. Beautiful filigree, scrolls, vines, leaves are all beautifully made with such intricate detailing all reminding of that bygone era of flamboyancy and attention to detail.
The majority of my brass is made in the USA and is made too a high standard.
I also found precious metal clay and i am exploring using old wax seals rich in history that have meanings of love, courage, hope and inspiration, each one individually made so no two are ever the same. This once Once fired they come out as .999 silver. This is also a great way of using recycled silver. I can make custom initials which brings personalization into each piece therefore being more personal and give more meaning to my jewellery.
The fine silver pieces in my shop are handmade by me and have an artisan organic look to them. They are not mass produced or machine made and are not intended to appear perfect but highlights the element of the design with all it's imperfections. This is how they are meant to look and feel. No two pendants are the same each one has it's own unique look flaws and all. But still beautiful in there own way the handmade way.
“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker
