Announcement   Welcome! So proud to be an Alutiiq artist! Botanical replicas, petroglyph images and more in eco-friendly silver and white bronze!

I replicate leaves, blossoms, twigs, shells, etc., in silver clay. The finished piece is then cast in bright sterling and white bronze. Colors may appear differently on different media. Pieces may vary slightly from the photos in the listing because they are handmade.

Complimentary shipping upgrade to a single USA address with the purchase of three items at the same time.

1) In stock items are made to order and shipped via United States Postal Service per shipping profile. They may be modified with 4 mm beads, clasp style, length, ear wire style, etc. Items may cost more or less when modified depending upon customization.

2) Custom one-of-a-kind jewelry in fine silver. It'll ship as agreed upon. This is paid before work begins and cannot be returned for a refund.

3) New design request in sterling silver or white bronze. This takes a couple of months to be designed and cast but is worth the wait if you have the time. Cast items are durable and reasonable in cost. The finished piece will be listed in my shop--if you like it you can buy it! No pressure!

Local craft shows--scroll down my home page to Etsy Local to find my scheduled craft shows.

My jewelry is sold at these brick and mortar locations:
--Blue Portal, Albuquerque (next to Church Street Cafe in Old Town)
--Sandia Crest House, in the Sandia Mountains east of Albuquerque
--Alutiiq Archaeology Museum, Kodiak, Alaska
--Ring Lake Ranch, Dubois WY (summer season)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

About

I am definitely stuck on silver!

I started making jewelry after I retired from Navy and prison chaplaincy. I couldn't find jewelry I liked so why not try making it? I learned to work with precious metal clay (PMC)--PMC includes recycled silver and this appeals to my sense of stewardship for our little planet.

I design, fire and polish and in general create the finished item. An award-winning foundry then casts the item in low-tarnish "de ox" sterling silver and white bronze. Finally I finish the cast pieces--drill, stamp, polish, dap, solder and in general make them into jewelry.

    I love the details I find in nature and replicating them in silver and white bronze!

    I am very hands-on, making unique molds and creating finished prototypes, which are cast at an award winning foundry. I then stamp, drill, form, solder, set stones on, and polish, coaxing the cast pieces into unusual, durable and affordable jewelry.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Silver and white bronze will naturally oxidize or tarnish over time. I use a little commercial cleaner or a dab of toothpaste, water and a soft brush; rinse and dry. You may want to try sealing jewelry in an airtight container that's lined with aluminum foil. As a LAST resort, I place baking soda and aluminum foil in a ceramic bowl with the jewelry and pour in boiling water. Rinse and dry.

Never ever use a sonic cleaner on soft stones, especially turquoise, pearl and opal.

Custom and personalized orders

New designs may be sold in fine silver or if you can wait a month or so, I may have the design cast in sterling or white bronze to increase durability and reduce the cost.

New designs in fine silver will be one of a kind items and must be purchased in full before work begins.

I will try my very best to create designs that work for both you and me, but I'm sure you will understand that I may not be able to fulfill your design request.

Gift wrapping and packaging

If your purchase is a gift sent directly to the recipient, mark the transaction as a gift so the price is not shown on the packing slip. For international addresses, the price will be listed on the shipping label.

Jump rings on a charm to use with your own chain

I will include two jump rings with each charm to use on your own chain:

1) A soldered jump ring. If it doesn't fit your chain, clip it with a manicure clipper, remove, recycle, and use the open jump ring.

2) An open jump ring. If the soldered jump ring works on your chain, recycle the open jump ring.
