Beautiful pendant which is well made. I had a name engraved on the back, and the lettering was exceptional. I really like the way it came out. This was a gift for my wife, and she loved it. There were no issues with this vendor. I would highly recommend her work.

This bracelet is lovely. I had a bit of a fear that with the black band it would look masculine, but it is a delicate piece and I know my sister will love it.

This caught my eye with it's design and use of color. Now I'm happily wearing my heart on my sleeves/ears.

I was glad that I could chose the length. Using computer a lot, I end up taking off bracelets to avoid them from clattering against the keyboard and end up not putting them back on.
The red beads one was gorgeous but I wanted to wear it often so I got the pretty green one. Very pretty!
Handmade fine jewelry that appeals to your passion!
My handmade jewelry is created in my home studio in Goleta, CA. My work is often representational and appeals to animal and nature lovers. My preferred material is silver and bronze metal clay, but I also frequently fabricate silver and bronze jewelry using traditional metal smith's techniques.
What sets my work apart from many other metal clay artists, is that I do not use commercial molds or shapes. Aside from the seashells, which Mother Nature has already mastered, I hand sculpt the "master" shape for my dog, horse, cat, mermaid, turtle, bird, and botanic pieces. I then make a mold of that original sculpture for the final piece of jewelry.
At no extra cost, I can customize your order with the name of your pet, place, person, or whatever, as long as it fits. Making a piece that has personal meaning to the wearer is any jeweler's ultimate goal.
What is metal clay? It is a revolutionary material created in the early 1990's and has tiny particles of silver, gold, copper, steel or bronze suspended in an organic binder to make a material that can be sculpted like clay. It is then kiln fired at a high temperature to remove the binder and produces an object that is pure silver (.99), gold, bronze or copper. Pretty cool right?
I'm known for the jewelry I make just for dog lovers. I was a competitor in dog agility trials for over 10 years with my Field Labs, and understand the depth to which we can bond and communicate with canines. Woof. We don't compete in agility anymore, but the three lovable Labradors I share my life with, keep me inspired and laughing.
Don't hesitate to contact me directly if you have an idea for a custom piece, or have questions about my work, or process.

Custom and personalized orders
The majority of my pieces are made to order. I can add text to many pieces as long as it fits. I can even alter some of my pieces to include your ideas, perhaps a stone, and type of metal.
Sizing information is requested on many of my necklaces bracelets and rings. Or send me a convo if you have special instructions.
Can I add my dog or cat's name on the back?
Yes you can and at no extra charge as long as it fits the peace.
How long does it take for shipping?
If I have the piece in stock it will ship within 48 hours. If the piece is made-to-order or I do not have it in stock, it will take one to two weeks to ship. It will be worth the wait!

In many cases yes! Just send me a convo about the piece you're interested in and I'll let you know if I can make it in a different metal.
